Windows 7: Laptop auto-completing every input field with dashes

Another wierd thing that is happening is that if I select an area in Photoshop, which I am using all the time, and do Ctrl+down arow, the selection will not now move, but I can move it in the other 3 directions with the other arrows. I have always been able to open a .jpg file into Photoshop from Windows Explorer by double clicking on the file. Now I can't. This has all happened in the last few days.

Sounds like a short or failed keyboard controller component, like an IC or transistor could have gone bad. Were you using any static protection when you replaced the HDD?

Still try the suggestion in my last post. Discharge all power

The new HD and keyboard were done professionally in Adelaide at the ASUS representative company. I'll give your suggestion a try tomorrow (my time) and get back to you.

I don't really think it's their problem. It is exactly the same as beingcp explains in the first post. If your suggestion doesn't work, I will just reinstall the OS again. I have split drives, so loose nothing and files are all backed up. I have spoken to the guys in Adelaide and they haven't heard of it before. Besides, I can't get there to take it in unless I do long diversions because of the fires which are near the highway!

glideabout, you are a wise man to be set up with split drives. Please post back your results.
Good luck
