There I was hammering out a response to a thread and on the screen appear the first line as I had typed it but the second line was total scribble As I typed a 'd' up came an i and so on the lower line of keys seems to remain as they should \ through to / but the middle and upper were presenting other characters to those typed. Fortunately I do have spare keyboards laying around. being PS2 board it entailed a reboot ,so after sending this off and a cup of coffee I shall revert to the original to see what I get But why the sudden change?
Just experimented with the the various Xtrakeys made no difference to the typing out put- but the normal assortment of Start/drop downs that should occur happened as they should. Oh well put it down to post Christmas malaise - even to computers
When chatting this item around I found others too have experienced the same- it all goes away eventually. Then I began to wonder- Going back in the dim mists of time when the only 'proper' computers available to Joe public were Amiga's and Atari's that operated from 'Live' floppies[ no Cd's or Hardrives for them their early days-later there were] As these 'live' floppies circulated with various programs [all on a 1.4 meg floppy] one would also get sometimes- crackling gunfire from the speaker and bullet holes appear in the screen or a Craaak and the screen 'shatters' or a police siren wail getting louder and then a police car races across the screen Such were 'virus's' in those days
