    Keyboard corrupt

    Keyboard-Right half corrupt
    On 2 different laptops, each running XP, when typing on the right half of the keyboard, Different numbers/letters appear. Same problem exists in whichever app I try to type in. However, if I plug in an external keyboard, it works fine.
    Also, on another laptop, the touchpad has become inop, but plugging in a mouse works fine.
    I'm thinking possibly drivers should cause these problems?
    Any help greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    More likely you have NumLock on.

    cheers, Paul

    Keyboards Corrupt

    My thanks to both of you for your replies. Somehow must have hit the "Numbers Lock" and "Fn" keys together to get that problem. (Makes me feel like a "newbie".) Now solved, and THANK you again.
