ACER keyboard problem

Aspire 3003

Specs: WinXP, ?
Hello,

A problem with certain keys on my laptop has just appeared while I've been using it. Certain keys have started mapping to the wrong characters, and it suspiciously seems to be isolated to the right side of the keyboard. For example, I hit k and get 2, hit l and get 3.

Any suggestions gratefully received!

Try reinstalling your laptop keyboard and make sure you install the "French" Keyboard driver.

Laptops have an additional Keyboard Layout, you toggle this by using the 'FN Key plus one other key' which is stated in the User Manual.
