    Hello,

    I'm running Vista Home Premium on a Gateway desktop that I purchased about 6 months ago. My problem is that from time to time the machine goes into a keystroke loop where a lower case 'L' ('l') is sprayed continuosly wreaking havoc and causing me to shut down the machine and restart it. Usually this happens after a period of inactivity but not always.

    Has anyone else had this problem?

    Many Thanks.

    This is resolved. As it turns out the keyboard itself was sending phantom keystrokes out of the blue when idle for a period of time. I replaced the keyboard and the problem disappeared.
