OFL created the topic: Intermittent Problem with Computer

Last night I tried to type something on the forum but it was as if the keyboard was not working. When I returned to the desktop it seemed that the keyboard was actually controlling the computer, can't remember exactly which button I pressed, but let us say I pressed P, it then brought up the print screen. It's done this a couple of times before, I went into the keyboard controls to see if something has been enabled but everything seemed okay, You have to then reboot to clear it.just wondered if anyone else has had this problem?

i had something like that once but that's 5 months ago.
all that i could do was switch through all the headers by pressing tab repeatedly.
mouse nor the rest of te keyboard was working...
i rebooted and things were fine.
as for now, all seems ok!

It is a computer less-year-old, Intel 7 Duo so I hope there is nothing wrong. I have had this problem on other computers so I believe it is just one of those little problems that happens occasionally, that is PCs for you.

you got it stuck in shortcut mode... im not sure how you get it in shortcut mode, but its definatly happened to me before as well. a reboot always got it out for me.

its either sticky keys or toggle keys you have enabled. stickey keys is press shift 5 times to turn on or off, and toggle keys is hold numlock for 5 seconds to turn it off and on. its either one of these, or you have a control key sticking :)
