I am using a HP pavilion dv7 laptop and for some reason lately when I try to type something it will all on it's own start typing w's, I am talking about a Huge string of them and sometimes it will do it when I hit any key. I thought maybe it was a virus and didn't have anything important on my laptop so I restored it back to factory settings but it is still doing it. I thought that it could be the w key sticking but It has done the weird thing when I have hit the d key among others. So now I am hoping you can help figure this out.

Many thanks ahead of time for your help.

Your laptop keyboard needs to be replaced. You can test this theory by using a USB Keyboard or the Onscreen Keyboard.
You can purchase a new keyboard from Ebay for as little as $14 US. You can go to Youtube to look for a video of instructions how to replace it

I never have had this issue while I was on XP Pro and as far as I know, the other computer in my house on XP Pro still doesn't have this issue. So currently I cannot make heads or tails on this. While I used to be very...

Xbox Live Connection Issue (still works but odd issue)
I've had this issue for quite some time now, and I think it may be due to recovering my gamertag on a different console, switching harddrive and doing a recovery, or just switching my Xbox in general. So here is my issue: everytime I turn on my Xbox it will automatically sign me into Xbox live...
