Default Keyboard has gone haywire - Help!

A Laptop? and the same problem being??

Now, everytime I press 'm', the number '0' comes up. Likewise:
u = 4
i = 5
o = 6

If so, and as you are some three months down the line from the original
post - and the replies!! - did you see the suggestion from Steve Winograd to
check that the 'Num-Lock' wasn't enabled.

I just corrected a similar problem with my keyboard having a mind of it's
It seems i had a "Trojan Horse" virus in my "System Restore". My
caught the (2) infections while scanning with the "Windows" Malicious
Software scan" (which by itself did not find anything but my own anti
software did during the scan). I sent the infections to the vault then
deleted them. I then deleted all the system restore points in my PC and
set a
new restore point.
My keyboard works fine now.
Hope this helps!!
PS : My operating system is XP and my keyboard is wireless.

Hi everybody

I have been trying to fix this problem for the past few days and
find much on the WWW that could help - so I'm resorting to posting a
online as it seems that the problem is unique.

Few days ago, I decided to clean my laptop's keyboard by disinfecting
I basically used an antibacterial wipe tissue, but because I was
rubbing each
key one by one, it must have caused the system to go haywire.

Now, everytime I press 'm', the number '0' comes up. Likewise:
u = 4
i = 5
o = 6

I don't know what to do - is there someone who could help me?
