Pressing key number 7 shuts down laptop

Specs: vista

I'm looking for some help or signposts to clear a weird software problem. when i key either numeral 7 or 8 my laptop immediately shuts down and will not restart unless i remove power supply. i have run scans, ccleaner, defragged, culled file but get no nearer than the suggestion this might be something akin to a batch file that has infected.

I'm using Vista

i'm presently googling for ideas and found this forum.

thanks for the opportunity to pose my question.

Did you try attaching an external keyboard? If the external keyboard does not trigger the crash, it means something is physically wrong with the laptop's keyboard. Its best to rule out a physical problem before trying different software to find malware that might not exist.
