Hi,
I have been getting loads of different problems recently, for instance,my display settings keep altering to a larger size on reboot, Explorer error messages,point32. error messages. But the most annoying to date is that when in a form or word document all of a sudden loads of full stops start appearing on their own. This started the other day when my son .ende a game he was pla.ying and the computer started making the noise that indicates that you have .hit the wro.ng key all by itself. .As you can see it has started to .do it. now. When I try to start up in DOS at the prompt it just s.tarts beeping like mad, I'm at a loss .I have tried reinstalling so.ftware and umpteen other things .Is it a case of a new keyboard for the full stop problem? and what is causing the others or are they rela.ted?
The full stop thing starts of like you c.an see .on this page, but .occasionally goes beserk.

All help most grate.fully received,.

it may well be that one of your keys is stuck down i have heard of similar probs and their solution was simply to give the key board a good clean i had a similar prob myself because my kids BLESS EM!!!! keep eating while at our PC
inevitable dropping crumbs and the odd biscuit into the keys

As Santos says, try another keyboard, perhaps a friend who has a computer can lend you his/hers to check if this is the problem
