When pressing Alt-F5, my screen blacks out for a moment and has no effect on the item in midslot 5(Tracking Comp II in this case). Alt-F5 works properly out of game. Using another account and installation of Eve, Alt-F5 again does nothing. I've verified the hotkey setup. Cleared cache w/ no effect. Closed all other programs that affect the keyboard. Nothing. Suggestions?

I had this exact problem, it was caused by my graphic card (ATI) using alt-f5 to switch screens.

You need to either disable the hotkey in the displays tab of your monitor card setup (r click screen > properties > settings > advanced >displays), or search through the registry and reset the value there.

I did post the registry fix sometime back in this forum, but you'll be better off using the first method.

Good answer =D

The ATI software didn't have any hotkeys set, but disabling hotkeys all-together fixed me up.

Glad it was of some use.

Here's the registry key that needs rewriting (found my earlier post):


Changing the Hotkey value to 0 cures the problem (or you can change it to another keypress sequence if you find the hex/dec number to apply.

The key rewrites itself if you delete it, but changing the value works.
