    Sounds like the keyboard map got screwed up. Did you change a setting?

    Off the top of my head, perhaps you can fix it in "Control Panel" (Device Manager, or System), or fix the driver, or try a new keyboard.

    my keyboard works fine. I want a new mouse though. I hate this wireless one I'm using I want one of those that are about 4 inches tall. Looks much more ergonomically friendly.

    I recently went through 3 keyboards (within a month) thanks to hypnagogue's "captions".

    I really need to stop drinking and reading.

    OMG YESS!!! I AM SO STUPID!

    It took me a few minutes to find NumLock on my laptop. it is just a little lock symbol which only works when I press the Function key:grumpy:

    sorry Lisa!:redface:
