My laptop screen has been broken for 2 months and i finally got it replaced today. *

Just came home to find it typing double letters or the button does the wrong thing. I.e. R and f7 acts as an enter button. 0 turns num lock on/off etc.

Also the power button used to take 5 seconds to do a hard shut down, as every other pc does, but it goes off as soon as I press it now.

What could it be? I'm so fed up.

Someone posted a not dissimilar thread in Advice a couple of months ago and the suggested advice was to set the laptop back to previous known restore point - see http://windows.microsoft.com/en-gb/w...sked-questions

I meant to reply to this when I saw it but forgot. Out of interest I did R and F7 and it brought up Caret Browsing. Switching it off got rid of the blinking cursor on web pages that started happening a couple of weeks ago for no apparent reason.

So thanks heavy_rotation you have accidentally helped me out, I looked all over mouse properties etc and couldn't find anything. Hope your problem is sorted.
