Hello Bleeping Computer people!
Computer with the problem is a desktop. HP Pavilion Model number a4327c-b. Windows 7.
My problem: Keyboard keys unexpectedly stop tying text and instead, pressing a key, activates a function.
For example typing the F key opens the File menu. Tested with a second keyboard and had the same problem. Problem started unexpectedly, without warning. Problem occurs when surfing the web and playing free online games at MSN and other popular sites.
Mouse works. Norton Security Suite working.
Temporary fix: Opened the On Screen Keyboard and pinned it to Task Bar. Opening and minimizing the On Screen Keyboard fixes the problem for a few minutes but then the problem reoccurs. Problem seems to reoccur when surfing the web and playing free online games at MSN and other popular sites.
Descriptions: Of how the problem effects these programs:
Outlook: Can’t open New Message. When forwarding an email can’t address it or type text. Keyboard keys act as if they are function keys. For example typing F opens the File Menu. Other keys open other Outlook functions/menus.
Word 2007: Can’t type in a Document. Type F key and Office Button opens. Other keys activate other Word functions.
Internet Explorer: In all Search boxes, can’t type. F key opens File menu. Other keys effect other menus.
Thank you for any help you can provide,
