Also, I can't shutdown my computer for some reason. When I press Alt+F4 at the desktop, and I choose shutdown, nothing happens. All the windows stay as-is, and nothing happens. I tried click Start>shutdown, but the same results persist. I even trued pressing the actual power buttong, but again, that proved unsuccesful.

However, I do not want to try to force shutdown or pull the plug, because I have not made back up files...

One last minor, but annoying problem. I am using a standard QWERTY keyboard, except with a few additional buttons like 'Launch Help', 'Increase/Decrease/Mute Volume' etc. Recently, when I press these buttons (such as sleep mode), nothing happens, and nothing shows up on my monitor either. All the buttons are dead like this (like eject drive one/two/play song/stop etc), except the volume buttons, which work but do not show up on my monitor.

Oh, and I have run two antiviruss programs. Windows Security Essentials and MBAM. Both came up clean.

Any insight/help on this?

Thanks in advance.

Edit: Okay, the yellow triangle seems to have disappeared for the time being, although I haven't done anything. :/

2 problems remain:

Computer won't shutdown
Part of keyboard doesn't work.

One more, but I'm not really too sure.

Occasionally, the computer will offer optional updates, which is very normal. However, when I click them, they usually popup, prompting me for a password and if I want to install or not, which is also normal. However, the time it takes for the screen to go to the popup is isanely long, ranging from 1 second to 10 minutes...
