You want to check the same things in Windows (control panel->keyboard and control panel->region and language). Also, is this a laptop? You might want to make sure some fn+f# combo wasn't pressed (fn+f10 turns 9 letter keys into a number pad on Lenovos).

Subject: Keyboard acting wonky on Vista....
I've got a client using Vista and only some of her keys are working properly. I tried typing in the word status to look up a report, and when I press the t key, I am immediately sent out of the search bar. I tried doing a help on the word keyboard and as soon as I typed the letter e, the help search app closed. Any ideas? On a mac computer, I would check to make sure the keyboard location is set to USA, or I would make sure the handicapped controls are not turned on. I'm at a loss with Vista.
Also, this version of Vista is running on an iMac running Parallels - all keys on the mac side work perfectly so something is wrong with Vista.
Any help would be appreciated.
