|Hey everyone, |
My Gateway laptop has gone nuts. Every time I hit a key, it types multiple other keys surrounding it- For example, the letter 'E' types '4es5', 'P' types '8*+' and regularly used keys like backspace type a '\' or line.
I've already tried the following:
-Uninstalling and reinstalling vista keyboard driver
-Made sure layout is set to U.S. standard layout
-Restored all BIOS default settings
-Hit various combinations of keys suggested on other forums, like FN + Scroll Lock, FN + NumLock, Control and Alt with the keylocks.
It appears the problem is hardware related because it does the same thing when I boot to DOS or type in a live linux distro. An external USB keyboard works fine but obviously I don't want to have to lug that around with a laptop.
Thanks for any suggestions! I'm baffled..
