I have this kind of problem before with my laptop dell vostro1400, all the technician did was clean the underneath of the keyboard and the touch pad connector to the keyboard. He advise me that if the problem occurs again I have to buy a new dell keyboard..
hope u r using licensed and updated antivirus (i prefer avg/kaspersky).. check the following with steps: howevr, did u tried reinstalling the keyboard driver.. or replacing the keyboard with a standby.. remove the mouse n see.. try reinstalling the os.. sometime it happens, if ur ram is faulty.. the last option left is ur main/mother board.. seek professional advice of ur system admin/vendor....
Is this a laptop? Some laptops will allow you to use these keys as the number pad/arrow pad as well in a certain mode. You will likely be able to turn off with a combination of the FN key plus one of keys F1-F12 (the function key will perform the action shown as a symbol on these keys).
If none of the symbols seems to indicate this mode. Try each combination and test to see which combination sets your keyboard mode back to normal.
I have been having the same problem for some time now with my Acer laptop and windows vista. What worked for me was changing a Mouse setting in the Control Panel. Go to Control Panel -> Mouse. Then go to the "Tapping" tab and make sure that the "Tap off when typing" box is Checked
Do you use a laptop or some sort of keyboard with a mouse pad? My son used to have that problem when he would type as his thumb would accidentally hit the mouse pad and move the cursor. We solved it in a very low tech way by taping a notecard over the mouse pad when he was using the computer. Depending on the manufacurer, there are ways to turn off the mouse pad while continuing to use a mouse.
