This may be an issue with the input method configured for the keyboard.  
You can toggle this with  <Windows Key>+<space>.  Many Dell machines are 
configured to use the US-international keyboard that encodes "<char> to 
an umlaut, so "e to ë and so on.  As a monlingual Aussie I find the 
plain "US Keyboard" has fewer surprises.
