Hi I have a problem that happens once or twice a day with the keyboard. It can be working fine then it sort of locks, and I am unable to type. When I press a keyboard key other boxes pop up. The only way to cure this is to restart the laptop. Am I pressing something I shouldn't or is itproblemlem with this newish laptop?

Thank for your help.
