Keyboard malfunction

  dave_johnston2k 19:59 13 Oct 2006

I came home from work today, turned on the computer nad now my keyboard refuses to work. When I press 'M' it is as if I have hit 'm' then 'return'. Also when I type 'x' its 'zx' and 'c' its 'cv' and a few other examples.

I used my system restore pack and totally wiped everything, but to no avail. It is driving me nuts.

Any ideas??

Also the computer is a laptop.

methinks it needs to go to the laptop hospital for repair. Has any coffe etc been spilled on the keyboard?

No coffee at all.

It was working fine this morning then all off a sudden...

Also, when i re-installed everything it told me the system had recovered from a critical error. Thing is...all I do is a little surfing and play some games...thats it! Its just odd. Could b a virus...

Try an external keyboard if you can.

I will do tomorrow. Its not much use as a laptop if that works. Something tells me it wont work.

Also, I tried re-installing all the drivers etc. Still no joy.
