Other thoughts....

Right Click MY COMPUTER, choose PROPERTIES, choose HARDWARE, choose DEVICE MANAGER (or choose DEVICE MANAGER instead of hardware....my mind is slipping and I cannot recall where it is in windows2k)

Expand KEYBOARD, right click and choose REMOVE or UNINSTALL (that mind thing again), reboot. Windows will redetect and install

Nothing showing explains this problem, so corrupt keyboard driver seems the most likely short of someone remapping the keyboard...anyone else use this PC?

OK I tried uninstalling my keyboard, and resetting. When it was booting up the main screen, a prompt came up saying "unable to find driver 2." Then it continued to start up normally, it prompted me to install my new keyboard hardware device, I am about to reset my computer again to see if anything has changed. I'll post again when i've done that

And after removing my keyboard driver(?) and reinstalling it, the problem still exists. I'm going to try using another keyboard, I'll post here when I've done that.

Success! After connecting another keyboard, and testing it, I no longer have the problem! Thank you for the help, it was greatly appreciated, if my problem continues(which i doubt it will) I will simply post again. Thank you again, to both of you for your help!

You're welcome and that's what we're here for! :tazz: I'm glad it turned out to be just a faulty keyboard, and not something more serious! ;)

I am closing this topic. If/when you need any help in the future, don't hesitate to come back to visit and start a new topic!
