Hi, When i'm writing an e-mail, or filling in forms,,,
every so often, a + sign takes over my typing and just starts making lines like
this:++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ and so on.....Regardless of what i do it continues, until i close out the page.....Does anyone know why this happens? And how can it be fixed? :thumbsup:

Sounds like a sticking key to me, have you tried another keyboard?

Hi, Bear, My keyboard is only about 3 months old.....That's why i did'nt think it would be the keyboard.....What i don't understand is, once it
starts making the+++ signs, it's like it has a mind of it's own....I could try hitting the +++key once it starts to see what happens.

Does this happen ONLY when you are filling out content on the Web? Are you using a web-email program to write Emails? Does this happen when you are doing offline word processing? I am trying to determine if this problem is confined to web use, or extends to other computing projects.

John

Hi, It usually happens when i'm connected to the internet.....The ++++
sign just keeps running line, after line, unless i stop whatever it is i'm
filling out at the time.....e-mail, on-line forms etc. chuck.
