Hi .

Can you try a different, "known working" keyboard to verify that the old keyboard really is the problem ?

Here are some very highly rated keyboards. Some newer PCs have eliminated the PS2 mouse and keyboard jacks and must use only USB devices. A keyboard with a USB connector and a USB-to-PS2 convertor is universal to all PCs.

PS2 + USB
A4Tech KL-5 2-Tone 88 Normal Keys 7 Function Keys USB + PS-2
PS2 ONLY
LITE-ON SK-1788/BS 2-Tone 104 Normal Keys PS/2 Wired Standard Keyboard

BELKIN F8E206-PS2 White 104 Normal Keys PS-2 Wired

USB ONLY

Rosewill RK-100 Black 104 Normal Keys USB

Logitech 967738-0403 Black 104 Normal Keys USB

Logitech 967740-0403 Black 104 Normal Keys 8 Function Keys USB

Logitech Classic Black 104 Normal Keys USB

You might want to try cleaning your keyboard.

Hi Hytomi,

Please check if the keyboard is acting up the same way in Safe Mode.
Press F8 when u just power up your computer. (You need to tap on F8 key before you see the windows welcome screen).
Choose Safe Mode (Choose Administrator when computer asks you to choose the user) and when the computer boots up, open Notepad.
Try typing and see if it is working fine.
If the keyboard works fine in Safe Mode, I assume you have some spyware/virus creating this problem.
If the keyboard acts the same way, it has to be a problem with keyboard settings or the keyboard itself.
Try doing a system restore to the date when your computer was working fine.
To access System Restore, please click START > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore.

Let us know how it goes. I will provide further assistance in case the above mentioned doesn't work.
