Erratic ps/2 keyboard

by jahidul_006 / April 21, 2009 2:23 AM PDT

Since some days my keyboard has been giving some trouble. When I start the computer, it works fine for sometime but then a lot starts happening all by itself. The Help and Support Centre pops up by itself, that too not once but 3 or 4 windows at a time. And then the "My Documents" link gets renamed something as "&==5666". After that the Computer goes into Standby mode. If I bring it out of that state, it again goes to Standby without giving me enough time to even open a program. If I am working at a document, letters get typed like crazy-all this without my even touching the keyboard. I am pretty sure the problem lies in the keyboard because if I unplug it and run the computer, I don't face any trouble (ofcourse other then going through the trouble of typing with the On-Screen Keyboard). Can anything be done about this? Any help would be welcomed.
My system configuration is as follows:
Win XP sp2, P4 processor, 512 MB RAM, 80 GB HDD, and the keyboard is Silitek made, PS/2, model SK1789. The machine is an HCL EzeeBee.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
