    Hi guys,

    I just bought a new optical keyboard and mouse (made by kensington and quite cheap). The mouse is fine, but I've got problems with the keyboard. I realised that I was having trouble typing in passwords and things as it was doing strange things, so I decided to test it out in notepad. I realised that although certain keys are typing fine (mainly the outside ones), some of the inside ones are doing very odd things. e.g. the 'y' key shuts down my computer, the 'n' or 'm' key seems to type about 3 different letters and it goes on, certain keys open up new windows, and other functions in windows start happening, and I can't figure out why. Any ideas?

    That really does suggest an electronic failure in the keyboard.
