When the caps lock is on certain letters are outputting to screen strange results.
eg. J yields J#
     Y yields Y=
     N causes the cursor to move back one character. This happens in word, wordpad, notepad etc.

Thanks for any help.

This is probably software but if you have a spare keyboard try this to see if your keyboard has a problem.

Hi...thanks to you both for suggestions.
Actually turning of the num lock worked Mikal so thanks for that. Do you know why this should suddenly start happening? Would it be in the bios, as for some reason some of the bios settings have changed and I have had to change them back.
(The num lock has always switched on at boot up so this hasnt changed)
Thanks
