When I press certain keys on my keyboard it doesn't type in what key I've pressed. For example this message comes up like this without copying and pasting some letters.


When 5 -ress certa5n 2eys 6n 0y 2eyb6ard 5t d6esn't ty-e 5n what 2ey 5've -ressed. F6r exa0-3e th5s 0essage c60es 4- 352e th5s w5th64t c6-y5ng and -ast5ng s60e 3etters.


I'm using Windows XP Home on a Packard Bell laptop, not sure of the make. Says EasyNote on it if that helps.
Any help is appreciated.

I am the way into the city of woe
I am the way to a forsaken people
I am the way into eternal sorrow

Sacred justice moved my archietect
I was raised here by divine ominpotence
Primordial love and ultimate intellect

Only those elements time cannont wear
Were made before me, and beyond time I stand
Abandon all hope ye who enter here

Sounds like you've got the numlock turned on. Check to see which key combination turns it off. (fn + keypad or something like that.) Notice the numbers on certain keys. There is an embedded keypad in the keyboard - useful for accountants who can touch-type a number pad.

Thanks mate that was it. Don't think I'll ever think I'll figure out how I hit those two keys though. Oppisite end of the keyboard.
