Strange keyboard problem
Posted on 2002-05-25
1've got a pretty we1rd problem. And f1rst let me expla1n why 1'm not us1ng r1ght letters...
My laptop seems to have gone crazy. 1t's lost control of one d1agonal l1ne of letters - 8ik and ,. 1've
got a F1nn1sh ceyboard 1n case anyone wonders. Any 1deas?
Here's what comes out when 1 try to press one of the ceys. All the others worc f1ne.
8=713824 or 097133824
i=UQEIWwr(backspace) or poUQEIWR
,=-.Mmzc, or -.MZC;XV
And noth1ng has really
happened to the mach1ne. 1t spent last n1ght on the floor load1ng the battery and when my g1rlfr1end turned
1t on th1s morn1ng the ceys d1dn't worc. They d1d last n1ght so 1 can't f1gure out what's happen1ng.
Before th1s the mach1ne has been to the Dutch Tos1ba Warranty Serv1ce tw1ce.
(1 currently l1ve 1n the Netherlands). Both t1mes the laptop lost some 1nternal power d1str1buter or
someth1ng. 1t worced w1th the battery but not w1th the power adaptor. The f1rst t1me 1t came bacc 1t worced
for 2 hours and went out aga1n. 1 sent 1t bacc and got 1t yesterday. Everyth1ng was f1ne for a day and
now th1s. What's wrong? Any 1deas?
And aga1n 1'm sorry for the strange spell1ng 1'm forced to use...
Typ1ng that tooc a loooong t1me... :)
Update: after 1 banged the ceyboardc, everyth1ng worced f1ne for a wh1le but now 1'm bacc where 1 started...
