Hello,
Try one of this following combinations also,
hitting NUM LK/SCRN LK key.
hitting CTRL and Shift at the same time
JUST PRESS FN AND NUM LK
ctrl+shift+num lock key
otherwise,
You have set the keyboard layout incorrectly. Go to control panel, regional options and set the keyboard layout to match your keyboard.

Did this scramble just come along out of the blue or was it after you did something?

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
