    Return Key Doesnt Work

    Locked

    by mswirski0135 ·

    I recently went on vacation this long weekend. When i left, everything was fine, nothing worked improperly. Today i get back, boot up my computer, and i find the middle Enter Key (Return) does not work. I am using a G15, and its about 2 months old, however on other forums and such i have noted others with a similar problem, but no answers. My right hand numpad enter works perfectly, and so does every other button. I have scanned with Spyware Terminator and Ad-Aware SE. What i don’t understand, is that it cannot be malware, because the computer wasnt on to get any. Any ideas as to what could be causing this? At the moment i am going to try to reboot, and then possibly go into safe mode if that doesnt do much.

    Thanks for any replies.

    Well, i downloaded & installed some minor software updates off microsoft, then rebooted. I could use enter, but i was getting a string of ‘[‘s constantly.(tested in notepad), i rebooted once again, checked temp of my computer, and logged on. So now i tested, its working fine, but i havent a clue as to what happened. I’ll leave this question open incase other people have had problems, but for now, mine is solved.

      You haven’t told us what type of keyboard you’re useing. USB or PS2? Makes a difference. I would say though that it sounds like your keyboard probably needs cleaning. -d

      In fact, you’ve got the one that has a plethora (over abundance) of entries about the ‘Return’ key scattered throughout multiple pages of Google.

      Doesn’t this tell you something?
