games and vista.
« on: April 12, 2009, 08:43:49 AM »
Okay I have a new lab top that runs vista. Any time I play a fps sometime while I am playing it it opens up what I believe is a translator. a little box in the upper left starts having Japanese or Chines character being typed. So instead of moving my character I am typing in Chinese. Any Ideas what is causing this. Microsoft says it must be my keyboard.

Is it possible that you have configured an alternative keyboard layout for chinese characters?  If you press alt-shift it cycles between the layouts you have, and that probably wouldn't be an uncommon keystroke in an FPS.

Go into your control panel, and go to Regional and Language Options, then go to the Keyboards and Languages tab.  Hit the Change Keyboards button and see if its configured there. That's the only thing I can think of.

Sorry I usually don't have a camera with me. A catapult was involved in one of them.
