keyboard problem
 
Hi, I badly need help to solve this problem. The spacebar on my keyboard is mapped to backslash and CAPS LOCK is mapped to character "P". Also, the keys ";" and "'" are mapped to each other. I do not know how this happened but its creating a lot of problem. Whenever I press spacebar it prints backslash and same for other mapped keys. Please help me remove this mapping. For example:

/this /is /what /I /get /when /I /am /typING;'AND /Please /help /ME /SOLVE /Pthis /problem.

you forgot the capitals in problem.. shouldn't it be pROBLEM seeming the p turns your caps lock back on?

i believe there is a keyboard .plist file (can't check for sure since i'm at work on XP right now). if you can find it, rename it and restart your mac.

if that works, delete the old plist file, if it does not, you can either keep the new one or put the old one back.
