    I don't know if a "hot key" sequence may have been activated inadvertedly - you can spend the rest of your weekend trying to figure that out.

    If you don't have any keyboard problems when typing in a DOS invironment, it's likely a Widnows problem.

    I would go to device manager, find that keyboard, right-click on it and select uninstall then reboot.

    Windows should find the device on boot up and re-install it.

    Keep us posted...

    :cool:

    Right click on My Computer and go to Properties. Select the Hardware tab. You should see the device manager then.

    Find Keyboards, expand the menu, then right click on your keyboard, and select uninstall.

    Then just reboot. It will likely come back online at standard factory settings then.

    check your scroll lock. This sometimes occurs with laptops with functions keys. If the scroll lock is on, it sometimes locks the function key to being on

    your best bet for finding inadvertently activated hotkeys is control panel -> accessibility options... or control panel->keyboard... of course every computer is different, especially OEM O/S installs so they could prove false...

    Also, check to make sure you have the right keyboard layout selected while in the keyboard controller of the control panel.

    Have you checked your bios? maybe its a bios setting...
