Here`s some examples of whats happening on my pc.

When i press the p key on my keyboard it types, qweruiop879+ and opens my computer folder and switches the scroll lock light on.

If i press the hyphan key it types, -`56= and opens outlook express, firefox help(in firefox. internet explorer help(in ie. and sometimes windows media player.

0 key opens search results thing any types 12347890.

Can`t get the @ key.

This is the best one of the lot.. The / key types bn/ and shuts down the whole computer.. nice! there is another key which puts it to standby, can`t remember it at the minute tho.

Few other keys do other stuff.

the computer beeps when pressing these too. It has only started to do this in the past couple off days and i have been using the onscreen keyboard which isn`t very practical. I scaned with AVG free but it found nothing, as did spy bot. :thumbsup:

any ideas/suggestions

If you happen to have another keyboard you can use/borrow, I would try that first to help localize the issue between your PC and the keyboard itself.
Also, you could inspect the cord and connector (usb or ps2?) for any visual damage.
Then make sure the keyboard connector is securely attached to the PC.
You might also check with your hardware manager (presuming you are running a Windows machine) to make sure there isnt some sort of conflict.
