Welcome to TSF. :wave:

Check the keyboard settings in Control Panel.

Scan the computer for malware.

Keyboard and sound dysfunction points at malware.

Run Kaspersky's online scanner to check for malware.
The online scan needs to install an ActiveX component before it can run.
The installation has to be accepted by you - click the screen (see below).

Hi steph:],

my l€tt€r "e" has gon€ w€ird.
How did you make the "e" above?
Have you tried unplugging and replugging the keyboard at the back of your computer?
Have you tried another keyboard?
Can you make a capitol E with your keyboard?

If your keyboard has a USB plug end on it, try another port.

Just some thoughts while your are chasing down malware problems.
Since all the keys on the right side of the backspace key have failed, I suspect the keyboard.:smile:

Best regards,

Re: Help, Weird Keyboard

Thanks mack1,
I unplugged the usb for my mouse and keyboard (they are both wireless) and as soon as I plugged it back in, the keyboard seemed to work perfectly :]
and I made the "e" above by copy and pasting it.
thankyou again.

You are very welcome.
Have a nice day.
