    Welcome to TSG, m00ch!

    What version of Windows are you running?

    Do you have these same problems in DOS?

    If you're running a version of Windows that has system restore, try going back a couple of days.
    If you're running Windows 98, boot into MSDOS mode and type scanreg/restore, then pick a date before the problem started...

    Note: Using all upper case is considered "shouting", and is impolite.

    Hmmm.....have you tried deleting the keyboard from device manager? then reboot and let Windows re-install it.

    Hi m00ch

    Try booting off a boot disk and typing from the A: prompt. If you still have problems while in DOS and have tryed a different keyboard I would think that the keyboard controller on the motherboard is bad.

    Desperate things to try.
    Reseat the processor and memory
    clean (with canned air) the system board.
    Unplug the mouse and see if the keyboard works better.

    BOL
