Re: keyboard problem

Did it originally have a Japanese Keyboard? Maybe the Keyboard you installed is bad or the numlock or some other function key is enabled???

Your keyboard uses a driver(small pieces of sftware). Windows might have corrupted the driver with no intentions. You can get into safe mode by pressing F8 on some models and you can either restore just before the update or uninstall the knowledge base update that caused it.
