keyboard behaving VERY strange!

by pagla dasu / July 6, 2007 5:09 PM PDT

My keyboard is a SAMSUNG SDK 3500 ps/2 keyboard, its behaving very strange. My system is P4 1700 MHZ, ECS P4VMM2 motherboard, 384 mb SDRAM, Win XP sp 2.
the keyboard's "p" key suddenly works and sometimes doesn't, not only that, the NUmlock stays on no matter how many times i press the key, and no NUM board figures work (numbers, enter button, anything), and sometimes the same thing happens with Caps lock, when the Caps lock button is 'always on' (makes me crazy!!) only lowercase letters work!
I have McAfee Virus scan 10 and Search and Destroy + AVG Antispyware, I scanned and found nothing BTW.
