Vista Keyboard problemsLocked
A friend with an HP advent laptop (Vista Home Premium) told me that some keys on her keyboard weren’t working. I assumed a hardware fault and gave her a USB mini kb to try out.
Visiting yesterday I saw she had the mini kb plugged in. The laptop keys cmbxv@. were not working (neither did the shifted version) so she was typing just these keys using the mini kb. Odd thing that these were the ONLY keys that worked on the mini kb – the rest did not work.
One other item some of the keys on the laptop keyboard such as c and b seemed to do something as trying to enter a delivery address in Ebay I kept being thrown out as if these keys were typing as Alt-C or CTRL-C or some other combination.
I am baffled. I tried the accessibility options but no luck. Seems like a driver problem but very strange. Any suggestions gratefully received.
