Default Systemax N34BS8 Laptop

I found a Laptop at my Dads Business. He works for a real estate Company. They just got all new Apple Desktops (how nice) LOL.. In the Process of them throwing away Computers they didn't want i came across a Laptop That was in the trash and it came with the charger that Plugs into the wall. (i came in Luck) There are a couple problem's with the laptop. When i first got it i did some Virus scans and a System Defrag. They didn't want this laptop anymore because they thought it was garbage. It had 41 viruses. I seemed to get them off. It is like lightning speed now. But theres another problem with the Keys. I pressed the letters W or the letter E and it goes crazy I opened Up Notepad and i pressed those Letters and it made a error Instead of Just showing up The letter E it made a error Like e;dnfvbnfgn' ?

I didnt understand this. Im starting to think it might be the System.
so do you think i should do a Complete reinstall of XP or what?
Im just trying to figure this Laptop out so i can start using it for the internet.I did a little researching and i found the Specs of the computer.

For my Desktop at Home Im using wireless internet. Wireless G.
and was wondering if this computer would be capable of running It?

When i first got the Laptop it came with a program that was running a Dsl line.So im sure its capable of running wireless Right?I forgot to the laptop has a side panel to connect some type of wireless card in it..


I just need some good pointers on what i can do to fix the Letter error and make it have wireless internet.


Thanks

Get a fresh install of XP on it. Then update all your drivers, that should fix the key problem. As far as the wireless problem, just buy a wireless adapter (preferably of the same brand as your router) and insert it in the card bus. Then you should be good to go.
