It may make sense to you because you can see something on your computer screen. We can't.

You haven't given any details about your PC, your operating system or what software you are trying to use.

Please describe fully the problem(s) that you are having.

Are you saying that whilst using your computer online it just spontaneously shuts down or crashes or something and you then get a keyboard error on restarting it?

If so, can you please tell us exactly what the error message is?

Does this only happen when you go online?

Yes but it varies as i said above the hewlett packard message comes up on resart.

I think what you mean is that whilst online, and typing messages on your computer it frequently crashes and restarts.On restarting you are getting a keyboard error message.

If so check that the keyboard is properly plugged in at the back of the computer and that you have no sticking keys.

The chances are you have a faulty keyboard..they don't last forever.

When you say it varies what do you mean? Does the error message vary or does it vary when the computer crashes?

Try another keyboard - sounds like you've got a fault on the one you have, it thinks keys are being pressed when they're not.

Yes its probably a few years old,could be 15 or more not sure, most time no message it goes goes blank screen,popping noise on speakers then off.It quite often happens when in a chat or downloading or finishing a clip etc.Its an hp board can i just get a cheap one is any1 compatable etc,and mouse is that similarly cheap and available,it seems stiff a lot also, thankyou jason.
