Laptop keys don't work properly in XP

September 17, 2011 at 23:04:41
Specs: Windows XP Pro SP3, 1gb
I have a Dell Inspiron 710m with XP Pro SP3. When I press any of the number or letter keys nothing happens in Wordpad or any browser or anything requiring letters. The keys make sounds when pressed (a Windows sound) and some close open windows and stuff like that. Also when I left click on icons, they stay selected after I let go of the buttons. I checked in the Regional settings and it's all set to US keyboard. I think this has happened to me a long time ago on another computer with XP.

I got rid of a bunch of malware and rebooted, now all seems fine. Thanks for the quick reply.
