Wrong characters from some keys

Hello,bb

 

Something happened to my Thinkpad Edge this morning.  Keys - especially the e now show up as p.  The sign from the F4 button pops up odd times on the screen  - I don't even know what it is.  Also the little camera icon from the F5 button shows up on the screen, then the sound icon will pop up.  Then the keys will change again.  I CAN'T GPT ANYTHING \;DONP!!!

 

Thanks!

Re: Wrong characters from some keys

Jason,

 

Thanks for the response, I did check this post before I wrote you.  Things do seem to be set right.  regarding location, time, date,   This problem has come and gone without warning.  It seems like there is a problem with short-kuts maybe.  Sorry for the spelling, I can't get things to work right!

 

 

Thanks for the help!

Which Edge is it? If it's a Edge 15 maybe this is your problem:
