My keyboard drives me crazy! Mosttimes, when I want to use a qustion mark ? or even quotation marks " ", it generates È. I tried going to Control panel, and Regions, but it says I am using Canada English, which is what I want. Any other suggestions?

Mine does this once in a while in a game I play . . . I think it goes away on it's own, and probably has something to do with holding down shift/ctrl on the left hand side of the keyboard for some reason. If you hold them down for 6 or 7 seconds does it go away?

Also, just as an FYI, when it does it you can use Shift-2 (or was it shift-6) to make a ?. I still haven't figured out how to stop it from happening, but it is really annoying.

Hi, what you need to do is to change the keyboard layout, this is a tutorial about it, hope it will help you.

Thanks for that, I didn't even realize I had multiple keyboard layouts, or a shortcut key assigned to switch between them, so removing the extra layouts and disabling the shortcuts sounds like it should solve my issue.
