    mY KEYBOARD is acting up. It prints 4's all the time. It will move the cursor so that the letters/numbers are not in order. Is this just the keyboard or something else? I have to keep erasing and retyping!
    Thanks!

    Maybe some of your keys are stuck down on your keyboard. Or their could be something down inside of it, the most common I run into is the paper clip. What I do is turn the keyboard over and tap in really fast on the desk. You might be surprised the stuff that will come out. If that doesn't work buy a new keyboard you can get one for 10 bucks.
