my laptop has started auto typing + sign repeatedly when I go to type in address bar or a document. When this happens the touch pad does not respond to tapping to select. I have reformatted hard drive and taken off + key to clean underneath. I have now installed a Bluetooth keyboard and this seems to work ok. Any suggestions?

Sounds like a problem with the keyboard itself. Most are cheap to buy and easy to replace. Post the model number and I'll give some links.

Thanks for the reponse. It's an Acer aspire 5750
