Hello my friend,this is probably virus or keyboard hardware problem.Update your antivirus and make full scan.If this still doesnt fix your problem go to device manager(Right-click My Computer then select Properties,select the Hardware tab,click the Device Manager button) for windows xp or click Start -> in the "Start Search" box type "Dev" (without pressing enter); wait for a list to show up and click Device Manager for windows vista.Next go to Keyboards right click all the keyboard you see and press unistall

SOURCE: my laptop goes crazy, the keyboard selects random

You have viruses. Probably the best thing to do is to go through the steps to reset to factory settings. If you arestill under warranty will talk you through the steps for free. If not, there will be a charge. Ask what it will be upfront. To proceed go to Dell.com and select support.

Rear Hatch Window


This could be a simple door adjustment. Have someone sit in the car while you push in on the hatch. See if the light goes off . If the light goes off, then adjust the striker plate so the hatch closes tighter.
