I have a 3 year old fancy multimedia HP pc whic i hardly used. I usually used my other pc in order to keep this one running nicely. Windows XP Microsoft 2003. Running fine till a couple days ago. the keyboard lights up, and works fine in my internet explorer toolbar, here, in Google, in my web based email, but when i try to use my keyboard in Microsoft Excel or Microsoft Word, for the past day or so, it is as if my keyboard is not seen at all by those applications. the keyboard button to eject CDs and go to night work fine. The only keyboard problems are in Excel and Word. reseated keyboard several times, no effect. rebooted pc several times, no effect. I dont know what else to do.
I have not downloaded anything new in the past week or so at least. about the same time, I started having problems with Microsoft Outlook. when i try to add a new appointmnet, it says it cannot be saved. I thought perhaps i had too many recurring appointments, so i went throu and deledted a lot of recurring appointments, but no effect.
