Default Keyboard Problem

Every now and then (randomly it seems) my keyboards just messes up on me. It makes all my text caps even though caps is turned off, a click of a link always opens in a new window, virtually can't use enter or shift and all this sort of stuff until I mess around with fn, alt, scroll, and some other random buttons. At which point it reverts to normal. Though it doesn't always work.

I'm running a month old Presario V5000 laptop on Windows XP. If this was posted in the wrong board please feel free to move it.

Thanks.

This actually should go in the General forum. Anyway, on with your issue.
With this being a new laptop, not much chance of the keyboard being damaged- you didn't spill anything, did you? If you have to play with it some, it makes me think it's more software related, something within your laptop is messing with Windows. I would do a Google search on the problem- keyboard on V5000 acting strange- or something of that sort. See what you get.

Google gave me this:
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/d...dlc=en&lang=en

Google actually gave me the Web site. Then I put in your model notebook. Then I did a search in Help and Support for "keyboard". This was the second link.

Hope this helps.
