Advent 7027 Laptop Keyboard Problem

  maund 08:34 04 Nov 05

Dear all,

I have an advent 7027 laptop - it seems to have developed a problem overnight. The keyboard doesn't seem to work properly. When you press some keys i.e. "P" it will not appear on screen, on the other hand, some letter work OK when selected. Other keys when pressed select 3 or 4 letters i.e when you press "X" Z,X and C are displayed! Can anyone tell me what is going on here! I haven't spilled anything on the keyboard and it was working fine last night, I'm totally baffled.

It could be a software corruption issue - try running System Restore as a first step.

I tried to run a system checkpoint using system restore, but was informed that it couldn't be restored.

If the laptop has a PS/2 port, try plugging a conventional PC keyboard into it and see if that performs normally.

Thanks, I've aleady done that and it works fine. I presume the laptop keyboard has decided to call it a day. However i've been noticing a few other things that don't look quite right with it.

Thanks again

Check there's nothing lodged under the keys.
