    It is a home Desktop PC, brand emachines, mouse used is Ball type and keyboard of Logitech (simple PS/2 connector)

    I observe during the remote session, any program even MS Word used the word and lines are jumbling. Making difficult to write.

    So advise me how can I fix this issue.

    Many Thanks In advance to view the case.

    Yes even the keyboard and mouse changed. Now I will find if anything wrong going with the softwares. As upto now, I had uninstall Service Pack 3, roll Back IE, Installed AVG 8.0 & Google Chrome.

    FYI: I got it fixed, it was the bad mouse.. since mouse already changed was mentioned to me.. So I pointed out after a long troubleshooting work.. then she said.. yes it is ball type and after getting replaced it with a new brand Optical the things gone work.

Well I have never seen that kind of a problem, if all the hardware is ok, it must be software problem, virus possibly? a fresh install would be a sure fire fix.

Toshiba laptop sends emails before I finish writing them

First check your mouse, if you notice your writing e-mails and your mouse jumps around it's not hard for it to accidentally click the "send" button. (happens, trust me). If that's the case try turning sensitivity down, next would be keyboard- either software or hardware. Give your keyboard a good cleaning and make sure there's nothing causing a button to be stuck or anything, if your keyboard is fine you can check to make sure every key is typing appropriately (region and language settings, explore to find keyboard options), if it's still having trouble consider doing a virus/spyware scan on your computer as this can also cause "miss-clicks" at times. If all else fails, try a live CD to see if it's hardware or software (or run local diagnostics if Toshiba included it)

So my friend has a mac book and she is on the phone w/ me and says that her key board is locked but only the letters...could assist please..thank you...i will give you her email address...

Is there a USB keyboard available? If so, plug that in and see if it works properly. A restart should clear out any software hangup.

The keyboard itself is connected to the logic board internally through only four wires, so it's unlikely a hardware fault would take out all the letters and leave the rest of the keyboard working. A matrix failure would take out some letters and possibly some numbers.

What program is your friend using?

My dell laptop types numbers instead of letters on some keys without pressing fn key

If you Are writing numbers instead of letters when you press the keyboard of your laptop and you must hold down the Function key (Fn) to write normally.

This is due to the fact that the digital lock is activated. To solve this, simply press the Fn+Numlk or depending of the model, press the button or Fn + Shift +Numlk

Hope This Helps

Having trouble to write 2 alike letters and to delete what i right

I'll agree it sounds like your system is being bogged down by malicious software i reccomend downloading and installing a free anti-virus software. Once you have an anti-virus software installed you want to update to the newest virus definitions just so you can get all of those pesky little things out of your system all at once.I've heard AVG works well and if free personally i like norton but it's costly. If your problem still continues pick up a can of compressed air and clean your keyboard but it sounds like a software problem not a hardware problem.
