Check your bios and see if there's anything related to the scroll lock. I've seen that happen in the past and the solution was simply in the bios.

Try plugging in an external keyboard so you can access the system. Once you are in the system, see if there are any errors in device manager and update drivers if needed. If it is not a driver issue, you may need to replace the keyboard.

Is this on a laptop or desktop PC? Does the Scroll Lock button not toggle the Scroll Lock LED? Make sure the keyboard is plugged in all the way, and is not plugged into the mouse port (if it's ps/2 and not usb)

Keyboard probs advent 9115 laptop


Sounds like your num lock has been toggled on by mistake. Look for a key that says NmLK. It will be in the same color blue. That key may also be the scroll lock key(ScrLk) that should solve your problem.
