I am using a different one now before someone asks. I was typing an Email last night when the keyboard seemed to go haywire for no apparent reason i.e. would not work at all or would put in huge spaces between words, then got even worse if I typed in a letter i.e. n I would get something like four P`s and ten 6`s appear on the screen and various other gibberish. Keyboard is a `Tiny` PS2 connection only about 3months old, any ideas please.
I had a similar problem with a USB keyboard a few months ago. I found that sometimes it would not even type anything. I just re-inserted the USB plug and all was well. So try checking that the PS2 plug is inserted and seated correctly.
I am currently using another keyboard with no problems, not an ongoing thing, just happened out of the blue. Checked the connections as first port of call. Tried the faulty? keyboard on another computer and could not even type in the password. For what they cost I may as well just buy a replacement but I am puzzled as to what causes this sort of thing.
Remove the plug, check that its clean, the re-install, also make sure no kinks or damage to the cable. Also check that the keyboard as no foreign bodies between the keys. As a final check, look to see that the keyboard is in the English/English mode, and not English/American mode.
Thanks for your help everyone, too late now I have taken it apart and need to be an accomplished microsurgeon to reassemble the thing. Have ordered a new wireless keyboard and mouse set £16.50, cheap enough and a new toy, never tried anything wireless before. Thanks again for your suggestions, will tick resolved.
