When I type certain keys either I get the wrong result or the computer goes to some random place. For example when I hit "P" the comp thinks I want to change my monitor to a projector mode. This happens even when I use an external (wireless) keyboard which I assume means its a software problem. Could this be a virus or keylogger problem?


please somebody, help!

Try turning sticky keys of, sometimes this can cause problems similar to what you are having.

A shortcut for this is to press shift 5 times

Turn it off by doing the following:

Control Panel
ease of access
change how your keyboard works
Make it easier to type
uncheck 'Turn on Sticky keys'

Sounds like hot keys are enabled, or Sticky Keys.
