When at home I use some wireless keyboard since I want to avoid early replacement of the keyboard on the laptop.
I have an HP Pavilion dv6000 laptop running XP Home. It has been running fine until about a week ago when both CNTL keys stopped working. Seeing how I'm constantly copying and pasting this has proved to be a huge nuissance. Occassionally it seems to work, but I can't figure out the common denominator when it does. It's not just after a restart or a program opens or anything. It's driving me insane. I would really appreciate any help you can provide. Also, something that you should know - I have many of the startup programs disabled in Startup tab of the System Config Utility (Start>Run>MSCONFIG). While I don't think that's the source of the problem, perhaps I'm mistaken.
