This one is for my sister, so I don't have alot of first-hand details. She calls today and says her keyboard wasn't working, so she bought another one. New keyboard, same problem.

To make a long story short, she later said she got it to work by adjusting or changing the computer's date, if that makes sense. I'm thinking that something is still lurking that might pop up and cause a problem later. Should she be concerned?

If her computer is not holding the correct date/time, have her try changing the CMOS battery on the motherboard.

I believe her computer was holding the correct time, she just changed it (set it back... how far I don't know) and that seemed to "solve" the problem.

If the clock is significantly off, it can prevent the computer from receiving updates from Symantec and Microsoft in particular, tho how that would affect the keyboard is beyond me.
