Suddenly. my caps lock on my keyboard works in complete reverse. with the "caps lock" on all of the letters are in small caps and when it is off all of the letters are in large caps. also my shift keys do not work. With the caps lock on the periods and commas give me "larger than" and "smaller than"><. the only way to get a period is to go to the "numeric keyboard.

also I can"t reset the cursor> when I try to go back to an earlier place< it highlights the words>

in my folders< I am unable to choose only one file> When I click on a file< it highlights every file from the beginning of the list to the one I have chosen>

This is to let everyone know that I have solved the problem. Although I had rebooted several times while trying to resolve it, nothing worked until I disconnected the keyboard and then let the computer find it and install it again. Everything is back to normal....... except me.

The problem has been solved. After trying many ways and rebooting several times, I finally resolved the problem by disconnecting the keyboard, rebooting and let the computer find it and correct whatever was wrong with it.
