    Hi,
    OS is windows xp sp3.
    The characters on a Toshiba notebook keyboard have become all mixed up. Several or more letters are numbers. I don't know how to fix this. Steps taken to try to fix it have been to uninstall and re-install the keyboard driver. I then restarted the computer.
    I could not find anything under language options.

    Any advise to solve this would be appreciated.


    Regs,

    Gemma
