Hi there, I have a Lenovo Z50! The keyboard itself is fine but the actual symbols are completely screwed up! Every symbol on the keyboard is wrong! Can somebody please give me some good advice on how to rectify this problem?

Using the mouse only, check the motherboard settings in Control panel and make sure the keyboard layout and language are correct. Something, including an infection, could have changed it. Might not be a bad idea to reinstall the OEM drivers as well for keyboard and mouse if there are any. Often on laptops, the Synaptics touchpad drivers affect keyboard functions so you might install the latest version of that if yours uses the Synaptics drivers.

I'd also do full scans for viruses and malware. Often infections can change those settings and make doing anything impossible.

Hi Grandmaster,

thanks for your quick response!! I have checked the control panel and all is ok there! Can you tell me what the OEM drivers are and hoe do I reinstall them? Thinking back I also may have pressed the FN button accidentally!
