Can anyone explain why a Logitec PS/2 keyboard (Setpoint 2.12b) would suddenly lose its apostrophes after more than half a year of perfect functioning?

Same thing happened to me... May 3, 2006

Hi!

I really do not know why, but my Genius keyboard did the same one day a few months ago; not only with apostrophes but also with other things like exclamation/question marks, all of a sudden!
I reset it and everything then went back to normal, but I would also like to know why this happened...

Been there, done that. I observed when this happens, you can save the file, close it and open again. This would seem to indicate RAM was saturated (probably multi-tasking).

My own problem is proving quite permanent, however (Would it have anything to do with those extra buttons on the keyboard? I just wonder).
