  1. Hello, I went through the process of cleaning my mouse while the monitor was off and I'm fairly sure I clicked something maybe I shouldn't have but after that the whole keyboard was messed up..

    E shows up as ]
    D shows up as ''

    Esc, start, [ , n, y, I, F1-F12 keys don't register, among a few others..

    Things I've tried so I don't waste anyones time.. [Windows 7]
    Changed Location, Keyboard Layout (English - US) is the only language
    Ctrl - Shift x1/2, Alt - Shift x1/2, and pretty much any other variant I could think of.
    Plugged another keyboard in, same thing.
    Plugged keyboard in another computer, works like a charm.
    Restarted, plugged and unplugged. Uninstalled and tried to update driver..

    Nothing worked so far, hopefully you can can make something happen.
    Thanks in advance.
