    Suddenly, my G5 Quad is completely goofy. When I type, for instance, the word "Cat" I get "Djy" on the screen. Only a couple keys actually correspond to what is on the screen correctly. I Swapped out the keyboard with a brand new one....same problem. I have checked to make sure language is correct in System Preferences. I have run Disk Utility. No change. I am stumped, not to mention dead in the water.
    I will paypal first successful work-around/ fix 50 bucks.

    Did you make sure your keyboard settings are set to U.S. and not Dvorak?

    Apparently "cat" in qwerty is mapped to "jay" in Dvorak.

    Anywho, the settings for keyboard layout can be found in System Preferences > Language & Text > Input sources, just make sure nothing odd is selected when it shouldn't be.
