One of the users on my Windows XP Pro has recently got some of the keys remapped. For example "u" has become "4". Other users on the same machine have their key mappings fine. Tried relog, reboot but it did not help. How can I reset keymap for that user to default?

U = 4 O = 6. It thinks it is a laptop. Turn numlock off and the keys will be normal. How this has occurred is not immediately obvious.

Chris,

You are right, it is laptop and the problem was indeed NumLock. Worst, the NumLock state is retained after logoff and even after reboot.

Thanks for quick fix.

Ah - it was not clear from your question that it was a laptop. This then is normal behaviour. Once Numlock is off, it should stay that way until you want it again - normally used if you plug an external keyboard in. Thanks for the points.
