on a acer travelmate 4050 laptop- the backspace key has stopped working
highlighting and deleting stops all keys working ,for a short while,tapping random keys starts them working again.
looks to me the keyboard is at fault,anybody got any ideas

do you or one of your friends have a usb keyboard you could try. If this works ok then it is probably the kbd dying but if you had problems with another kbd this could indicate that the registry/windows installation is confused.
