    keyboard functions changed after sudden shutdown


    my keyboard has suddenly changed what some keys do

    the many are fine, but the following changes occurred;

    L = mute
    n = nothing
    o = nothing
    y = q
    6 = nothing
    9 = nothing
    rctrl = lower volume
    lctrl = nothing
    left arrow = nothing
    right arrow = shift

    this seems a very odd set of changes

    i've checked my keyboard settings in control panel and it is set to qwerty

    this first occurred directly after my laptop unexpectedly cut out (without shutdown) for the second time in about half an hour, both times playing a game.

    i've scanned for viruses and come up clean.

    i've checked event log and found the following;

    - 3 like this;

    Source: Microsoft-Windows-Kernel-Power
    Date: 06/06/2014 21:58:00

    The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly.

    <Data Name="SleepInProgress">0</Data>
    <Data Name="PowerButtonTimestamp">0</Data>
    <Data Name="BootAppStatus">0</Data>

    and several warnings about the speed of processors being limited by firmware

    please help asap!

    thanks in advanced

    Hi there .. What game where you playing when this happened .. Do you normally play this game ? You need to fill in your System Specs .. As for your Function Keys as this is a Laptop it will have Software for the Function Keys .. Which can be got at the Manufactures Website ...

    i was playing 'sniper elite v2' which i recently got on steam

    only played it for the first time today, but since both crashes ocurred while playing it i uninstalled it

    when i said keyboard functions changed, i should be clear on the fact that i didnt mean the function keys specifically, although some of those have also swapped.

    i simply meant the role of some of the keys was now different

    stupidly ive just realised i posted this to the windows 7 forums, but im actually running windows 8.1
