I have a new laptop. samsung NP300E5A with core i5 processor. Of late the space bar has been on the blink. It seems to be pressed down when I am not using it.
The problem was first apparent when using google chrome, but is now happening haphazardly on all other programs. This results in scrolling down pages, pause/play movies on media players and editing issues on word doc etc. A royal pain. At times the spacebar will not respond to me pressing it, but this occurs less so than what I already described. Furthermore, my mousepad gets stuck or freezes at times as well. These problems seem to be worsening. I can stop these freezes by pressing esc button, but its a temp fix.
Microsoft security essentials have not picked up any viruses. Malwarebytes picked up a fastdownload.exe malware that may have come from a torrent file I was attempting to download through torrent crazy. I have run a full Malwarebytes scan in safe mode without any revelations.
My computer knowledge is next to zero, therefore if someone can make suggestions pretend I'm a 5 year old so I can easily follow. This is my first post to such a forum.
I hope this is enough info.
