Hi edwin and welcome to BleepingComputer.

Would you please tell what kind of computer you have, pc, laptop?

What kind of infection did have and how did you go about getting rid of them?

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Try the old "shake foreign matter out" method lately?

How is it connected: PS2, USB, other? If its PS2 check for bent pins in the male end. For USB, try another port, if possible. Also, do you happen to have a spare KB lying around that you could try out with your PC?

The simplest solution is to try a different keyboard. Until you eliminate the possibility that there is just something physically wrong with the keyboard, then all anybody can do is throw out random suggestions. How about start with the most simple choice first?

OF course, if you have a laptop, that presents an entirely different issue.

And what did you try to reinstall?

Well...it may be time for a new one :thumbsup:.

Available everywhere these days, cheaply.

In any case, I think it's a good ideat to always have a spare keyboard and a spare mouse (and maybe a spare power supply), but that's just my approach to these things. I hate being inconvenienced by the lack of items which are simple yet crucial to using my systems.
