Laptop Keypad messed up

  coubury 11:19 28 Dec 2008

yesterday my laptop keypad started to go all funny
if i pressed the 'f' key it brough up the search box if i pressed the 'l' ley it logged me off, if i pressed some numbers letter came up.

I repaired xp but that never helped the funny thing is i created a new user account with admin rights and it worked fine but if i turn off my pc and log onto the new user account its all messed up again so i have to create a new account again

now the num lock is not on.

the laptop is a samsung a10

anyone had this problem before?

Hi coubury,

Your WINDOWS key (usually bottom row second from left, with a windows logo printed on it) is stuck in the down position. Try just tapping it to release it.

but that would not explain how it works ok if i make a new user account :S

in device manager then switch the laptop off and on so that it reinstalls the driver from fresh.

Get hold of a PS2 or USB Keyboard and see if that performs OK
The Idea is to establish the fault - Keyboard or system.
Then come back
