When I press the letter 'b' on the keyboard of my desktop PC it is not displayed on the screen. None of the other letters are affected in this way. The OS is XP.Is there anything I can do about this problem?

Does it happen in all "word/text" programs - word/notepad etc? Has it just started?

It happens with OpenOffice. It started about two weeks ago. It has also occurred - but only temporarily - with the letters 'a', 'p' and 'g'

As a start I would suggest trying a different keyboard

Does it only happen with the one program?

It happens with the OpenOffice programme which is the sole programme i use at present.

Does it happen when you are typing a response on this forum?
