    Hi guys


    I'm at my wits end.


    I have these incidents where I'll be playing a game [namely City of Heroes :D], and about half an hour into the game, my keyboard will decide that it won't let me move using the keys - neither will it allow me to use the Windows key to get out of the gaming window, which I normally have no problem with. When I do press the windows key, I can only see half of the taskbar, and the game is still visible. In-game animations are playing as normal, yet I can't select the CoH tab in the taskbar to return to the game.

    I can, however, type as normal (on the first sign of this happening).

    I end up having to switch it off from the mains!

    It's been doing this for a while now, on and off - I'm worried I will damage the hard drive, or I've already damaged it. :(


    I've attached a pic of the EventTracker log which shows "Printers" as the category - I must say though, a printer is not attached [which is even more weird]
