Just out of curiosity, go to Run and type OSK. This will bring up the on screen keyboard, try typing and see if that brings up the "wrong" characters. This would eliminate the keyboard or prove the keyboard is having issues. You can also attach a USB keyboard and double check with that.

If it happens again, disconnect from the internet (make sure no connection is active) and try again, if it fails to reproduce the problem, you may have a virus

If it is a virus, chances are it is allowing someone to remotely access your computer and producing these errors (probably unlikely but..)

Please try the above and then get an online virus scan to eliminate this possibility

I could be wrong but it sounds like your keyboard layout is set to swype instead of qwerty. On the bottom left of the keyboard is the setting option.

Dell D510 still on dell display


Yes, you either have some corrupt or missing boot or system files. Run the Check Disk Utility.

To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc ora operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot fromit. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with whiteletters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice thepercentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run tocompletion. Then reboot machine.

If check disk fails to solve your problem you might have to reinstall windows.Try doing a Repair Install that way you don't loose your data, documents,music, pictures, videos or programs.

In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair whenthe options appear.

In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recoveryconsole and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.

There is a possibity in the system to change keyboard-type (not language): Start/Configuration/Keyboard - choose the right type. I think that the system still things the external keyboard is atached whils you're uising the built-in one - which seems to have different keycodes, causing this problem

Likely to be crud under the keypads - particularly if the letter-combinations are always the same: I had the same problem on my notebook, and fixed it by using a pin to 'plough' the gaps between keypads for hairs. Blowing / vacuuming might also help.

Keyboard & Mouse Problem


Seems like you Ctrl-key is pressed all the time somehow.
Make sure that none of the Ctrl-keys is stuck.
If you try another keyboard, everything should work fine, so just check your keyboard. Maybe you need to replace it.
