sony laptop problem

can anybody help me. i have a sony vaio laptop and for some reason when i press the caps lock button i get random letters and numbers instead of the letter i want eg =p17 P1357 =p1
that was as a result of pressing caps lock three times. any ideas folks.

I would suggest running your antivirus and spyware programs and it sounds like something is messing around with it.From a sony laptop owner

try resetting
control panel - regional settings and laguages - set to everything to english US and reboot.
then reset to english UK and reboot.

If that doesn't work then try reload the keyboard drivers in control panel (attach a usb key board first.)
