Laptop keyed letters wrong

  martin p 19:05 08 Jan 09


My Laptop has i would think a virus, when i type, words etc into the address bar some letters change to numbers,
Typing across the second row in order produces
asdfgh123 etc.!!
i use Mc Afee Antivirus software, this detects NOTHING !!
Any ideas PLEASE

This is where the numeric keys reside on a laptop keyboard - so I would think it's possible you need to switch NumLock off.

Sounds Like you Have Number lock switched on fn key plus one of the F keys at the top should control it. On my HP Laptop its the same key as scroll fourth top right
