Why Does This Happen, And How Do I FIX IT!!!

Postby Galore » 21 Feb 2009, 00:20

I do this all the time... hit something on my keyboard, and end up getting this ÉÉÉÉÉÉÉÉ instead of a question mark!

How do I fix itÉ (that was supposed to be a question mark, lol!)

Have you got number lock on or something? Some times if the number lock is on and you hit two keys in sequence it's a shortcut for French symbols like the one you're getting.

that used to happen to me all the freaking time when I was on windows vista. I know it can happen on XP but it never did so that was the exact reason I hated vista and one day said "FUCK IT" and bought a mac.

this tends to happen to me when i've been on the computer for a long time ... except it only does it with msn. if i go into a word processor it doesn't happen, not sure about the internet though.
other than that i don't have any problems with vista :p
