I just bought a HP ProBook 4530 with Windows 7 and am trying to get used to the multi touch pad. I seem to accidentally do something every few hours that locks my keyboard in what looks like "CTL-lock" mode. I have no idea what this is but something I manage to do by resting some finger on the pad and the wrong time makes every key I press after this do some unknown action, act like the control key is being held down all the time. It is either the CTL or the ALT function seems locked. For exammple if I start to type an F in the text box of outlook, the FIND function pops up. If I try to type a P on a blog input area, the print screen dialog pops up. The only way to get out of it is reboot and this is getting old.
Is there anyway to reset the keyboard back to normal when I accidentally do whatever it is I am doing?
