    ALT Key wierdness


    For some reason my ALT +F(2 or 4 or whatever) has stopped working. ALT + Tab still works.

    How do I get my ALT + FKeys working again?

    Well, OK now I am embarrassed.

    Someone and all the Humans in this house are denying all knowledge; hit a key I have never used before. F-Lock which apparently triggers alternate functionality in the F Keys. The cats are looking smug so I am going to blame them.

    At least I know what that key does now...

    It was driving me nuts! It did turn out to be the least of my problems however.

    Last night, my PC decided it was time to release the smoke built into the mobo and die. I have franticaly resurrected another machine with spare parts and put Mint on it.

    My base specs are now

    AMD Althon 64 X" 3800+
    3gb Ram
    2 x 250gb sata hard disks
    256 mb PNY Geforce 7
    Onboard AC97 sound
    100mB Network
