    Forgot to say, this is on a windows ultimate edition. I have tried checking the keyboard hardware aswell and there seems to be no problems.

Please see whether your keyboard layout is correct in the operating system. i am expecting yours is windows and i am telling this configuration.

Go to control panel -> keyboard -> hardware -> and select as US Standard keyboard of 101 keys

    Sorry, there is no way to edit the preferances from the keyboard hardwear tab or the device manager, is it located somewhere else?
    (also sorry, i forgot to ask my roomie to check up on his computer)

Hi there,

If your computer works fine with an onboard video, it is possible that your motherboard is not getting much power. The agp video card gets power from the motherboard. I suggest using a different power supply.
