    Thanks,, I already took it apart, right down to the membrane with carbon traces and it didn't help. Thought I'd find dirt. Need a new Keyboard I'm sure now.

Find instructions how to disassemble the keyboard, and check the plug or cable. Also make sure there is no debris in the keyboard under the keys. If these things don't work, you can find a replacement keyboard which would not be expensive.

SOURCE: Connect Laptop to TV

if your saying is connect to TV and use the TV as your monitor.

if your laptop have S-Video out
you need S-Video cable ( you can buy S video cable to RCA cable)
all TV have RCA input so this is plug n play

next option is connect from VGA port

this is possible if your TV have DVI need only the VGA to DVI cable

if you have this...all you need is configure you laptop...

right click on desktop
select properties
select setting tab
you will see to monitor
select number 2 and check extend my monitor...
click apply

if you are connected by VGA can do the instruction above or do the press and hold Fn key + F8
then you are using external monitor

Microsoft Wireless Mouse and Windows Vista

I'm having pretty much the same problem with my Microsoft Wireless 4000 mouse and my hp-compaq 8510p laptop. If I shut my machine down, or restart, my mouse no longer works. I have to uninstall/reinstall the Intellipoint software. The synaptics touch pad continues to work, but the mouse fails.
