    My keyboard is misspelling words!!!!
    Well, I am back again with another screwy problem. While typing an email suddenly several keys went bonkers. I.E. my Z and Y are reversed. There are several others which I will indicate later. I am just hoping there is a cure for this strange behavior. Unplugging the kb did no good. Any ideas out there how my kb can get back to working properly. (cannot even type a question mark)

    BTW, it is the white Mac kb.

    Thanks and below are the four rows typed without shift key.

    For starters, check in Sys Pref > International > Input Menu to see that Australian is checked and has Roman script.

    If your k/b prefs have gone west, you might need to Trash them and then do a selective reinstall.

    Third option is that the k/b is naffed, or that the cable/connector is dodgy. Can you try it on another Mac?

    Keyboard gone bonkers
    Thanks, Hugh; In the language list had some other strange country selected. Ticked it off and my k/b became friendly again. You represent New Zealand very well. Thanks for all your help. Sure will come up with some more strange requests. Hans
