Did you recently make any changes? Bios Mods, memory, or hardware upgradess? Try reseeding the memory, check the battery, verifiy that there is not any keys stuck.

It is possible, but I would not think so. I would try and reseating as many modules as possible, it sounds like somehting is loose or fried up. Did you have any power surges or outages?

Highfive Gives IT Their Time Back

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!
