    Hi, my son has a Compaq presarion comp, that developed a perculiar habit three weeks ago. When you want to bring up Task Monitor with the ctrl+alt+del keys you can't use the usual ones as I or most others do. You have to press the Alt Gr key + the right hand ctrl key and the del key above the cursor keys. It did work as normal up to 3 weeks ago. Thelanguage selection is still correct English British in control panel as are all other settings. Would be greatful if anyone has a clew what has screwed up, because I'm stumped, Yours STUMPED in uk

    Hi Carlton46

    It sounds like some keys on the keyboard went bad. I would try a different keyboard first to see if that fixes your problem.
