O.P. Laptop keyboard not working
My house mate's laptop keyboard has spazzed out.
Shes using Windows Vista Home Premium
Basically, all of the keys that have functions attached to them (so the keys with the keypad numbers and signs, volume up and down, etc.) don't work and the computer beeps whenever they are pressed, and the F keys (F1, F2, etc.) have different keys assigned to them so like F1 acts as the Windows key, F3 is "Z" and F4 is "N") but the other keys work fine. Also the return key doesn't respond. I've tried doing a system restore and that didn't help and I uninstalled the keyboard and reinstalled it but it has not changed.
I also noticed that even on the Vista boot options the keys were not working.
My house mate tells me that she hasn't modified anything on her laptop to make it do this (she was on Facebook at the time)
Any ideas? Its an Advent laptop and ERT model.
