Very strange behavior. Some background:
I bought a new lenovo G550 laptop, running Windows 7. I live in Israel.
When I type certain keys, in any application, they are prefaced with the backquote (`).
These characters are: Insert, Delete, Left Ctrl (the right-hand one is fine), - (the regular dash: the one on the keypad is fine), =, 5 (the regular one), 4 (the one on the numeric keypad, whether or not Num Lock is on), and PgDn (the regular one).
When I press the Fn key with these I don't get the behavior.
Does anyone know why this is happening, or how I can fix it?
EDIT: Some friends suggested that there's some faulty wiring in the keyboard somewhere. If I can get hold of an external keyboard, I'll be able to test it better. In any case, I'll call technical support.
EDIT 2: When I switch the keyboard language to Hebrew, the ` comes out as a
;. The backquote key on Hebrew keyboards is the semicolon, so this looks like a hardware problem. (I don't have sticky keys turned on.)
