My nephews laptop is having a problem with a couple of keys. For instance, when I hit the number 1 key in Microsoft Works Word Processor it does type the number 1, but it also executes the Help for the Word Processor. When I hit the number 6, it types 6t. When I hit the 8, it types 8u and when I hit the number 9 it types 9p. It also does the reverse for the number keys that I already mentioned. If I hit the t, it also types 6t and so on with the others. I have checked all the other keys and they seem to be fine. I have plugged in a usb keyboard and that works fine. Anybody have any idea why this is happening. Thanks
