My OH just took a panicking call fo me from a friend needing to do some work tonight on his laptop , which involves using capital letters , and since Microsoft downloaded a stack of updates last night, his computer will only do lower case . I havent a clue , so thought Id ask on here. Is this a common problem on laptops generally, or do I need to find out exact model etc? Can anyone help please?

I thought system restore was a resource you only used if you were pretty computer savvy -- not sure if this guy would be ok with that route . I certainly wouldnt know what I was doing with it.

Im afraid I only remember the Cleaver hospital, not the maternity one. Bet you had a nice view of Wales.

It's not complicated. You can find it under Accessories-System Tools-System Restore and follow prompts.

Yes, the view was and still is spectacular.

It's possible that it's not connected with the update; maybe his shift key isn't working.

The guy did a systems restore to the previous day, and Bingo, it worked thank goodness. Apparently no, it isnt difficult, so might try myself in the future if ever I have the need. Thanks everyone for your posts.
