Okei. So, I was just going around the Shoutbox ad forums and stuff, then all of asudden, th5s started ha**en5ng t6 0y ty*5ng.

The only way I'm getting out of this is by pressing Fn on- O, M, K, I, U, L and J. Then I have to copy-paste the letter p. If ot, *'s come up.

This is extremely annoying now, does ANYONE know how to fix this+

That's... really.... weird. If you're still having the problem, unplug the keyboard, restart the computer, and plug it back in, which resets the driver. User221 is probably going to be more helpful than me, though. XD

I use a laptop. The eyboard is is built in, unless you want me to rip it out.

I've only encountered it once 6 years ago. I told the person to shut down the laptop, unplug it and remove the battery. I believe he left it set overnight and it worked fine. My best guess is that static electricity builds up and disrupts the keyboard.

If your laptop has a procedure for discharging it (ThinkPads have one which requires all power sources removed and the power button pressed 10 times followed by a press of 30 seconds) then it might be faster to do that.

It's happened before when I tried to do Alt Code.

I see. Which means if you shut down the computer or reboot it the problem does not persist?

I don't know, I've never done so. All I know is that the problems leaves after time for some reason.
