So shutdown - disconnect emachine connect borrowed keyboard - restart - test, and repeat with the second,

When your computer is hot especially when you have been using it for a long time (hours) keyboards tend to type wrong. This is due to heating up of circuits causing some small short-circuits. Better cool off your computer for an hour or so.

If it persists, check the fans inside your CPU. These may no longer working that caused heat to build up inside your computer. Fans can be found in your video card, your processor and at the back of your CPU.

    Dear dleahy,
    Just to clarify that I'm not talking about the keyboard heating up, it's the circuits in the mainboard (processor, video card area) I'm referring to. That's why I suggested there may be a problem with the fans inside the CPU. I just share this info based on my experience. The fan cooling my processor was not working and I got garbled characters typed despite changing the keyboard.

Can you pull all data off of it? Is it still under warranty? If not find a computer on e-bay, pull the hard drive out of it and reinstall your hard drive in the new computer, buy an external 2 1/2 inch hard drive enclosure enclosure for the hard drive from the new computer. Thre is more than likey mother board problems.

Letters sometimes won't work


I assume you have a desktop system with a plug in keyboard; if you have a laptop please tell me and I will type up instructions on how to clean the keyboard on laptops.
You might want to try cleaning out the keyboard.
Unplug the keyboard and hold it upside down; shake it gently and allow debris to fall (pressing the keys can help).
I would also either use compressed air or a small computer vacuum on the keyboard.
Let’s see if this working…if not we might need a through cleaning.
