    Hello All,

    I have a G5 Dual 2.3, 10.5GB ram, 230GB hard drive, NVIDIA Geforce 6600 running version 10.5.8. Yesterday when I turned the computer on and began typing I noticed that nearly all of the keys had another random function as well as the normal one, for example when I type "l", "l=" would appear.

    I reset any keyboard shortcuts that were in place and checked the keyboard viewer, which says I am pressing two keys at once. I tried with another non-apple keyboard (editors keys) and certain keys just would not work.

    Any help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated

    Maybe Universal Access got switched on accidently for the keyboard? Something like Sticky Keys? IDK.
