My pc has been working very well. While I was sleeping yesterday there was a thunderstorm. The pc first appeared ok, but upon typing a bad problem became apparent. The Logitech usb keyboard was producing extra characters. I thought the keyboard had been damaged by the storm so I powered down and rebooted with a HP ps2 keyboard in place of the Logitech usb keyboard.
The HP keyboard also produces double characters, but the corrupt keys are different keys than the corrupt keys on the Logitech keyboard.
Here 'is 'an 'examp.le 'of 'what 'characters 'I 'am 'getting 'if 'I 'don 't 'ma,ke 'any 'corrections.l
space bar = ' letter k = ,k letter l = .l semi-colon = /; colon = ?:
comma = ,k ' period = .l forward slash = /;
I see a pattern here in that the letters all relate exactly to the row below and then the row above.
Also, I use the GOM player for video files. The spacebar is PAUSE, but it is also opening up some shortcut in the GOM player.
This keyboard - the HP pci wasn't pluuged into anything during the storm.
I have gone into Regions and Settings to verify all is standard U.S.. I also went back 3 days and did a System Restore to see if it would help, it didn't.
Do you know how I might stop this corrupt double character problem? If I only need a new keyboard, great, but since it is malfunctioning with 2 different keyboards that doesn't seem likely to me.
Any 'and 'a.l.l 'he.lp 'is 'appreciated 'because 'this 'wi.l.l 'drive 'me 'insane 'quic,k.ly!!!
Than,k 'You 'A.l.l
