Laptop keyboard freezes

I have a Compaq Presario A900 laptop running Vista. Every now and then the keyboard just freezes and the only way out is to re-boot. The mouse continues to work as normal.

Anyone got any ideas why this would happen?

Many thanks

Hello again,

Sice posting this as resolved the same issue has started again. It appears to be completely random and I have to re-boot every time, very frustrating.

Is this common to compaqs? Is there anything else I can do?

Malware could also produce these symptoms, I would advise you to run any anti-malware programs you have.
