That's a great suggestion. I hadn't thought of it, but I would have to buy a 
new keyboard to do it, as I don't have ready access to another right now. The 
curious ting, though, was that it only seems to happen about once a week, for 
about 3-5 minutes, and then all is okay. I'd have to wait quite a while

I may have to resort to this, if nothing else works or it gets worse.

Was talking to a local shop and they can indeed get foreign keyboards, but I 
don't now how fast.

I have not being able to type äüßöáà and the like. There is the xkbd compose 
key as an option, but the extra keys on a 105-key keyboard are so nice.

Wonder why they don't just make all standard keyboards Western European 
compatible, instead of all these different numbers of keys?
