Presumably it is running "Windows". If that is the case go to "Control Panel", select System" then select "Hardware" and "Device Manager". A new "window will open: select "keyboard", click on "keyboard driver" then "uninstall". When you reboot computer will ask for "windows Disk" so it can reinstall the keyboard driver.

Hopefully this might cure your problem.

1/ Turn off your computer and unplug the offending keyboard

2/ Turn the offending keyboard upside down and thump it with the handle of a soft brush (to get the bits of toast etc out)

3/ Soak the soft brush in a solution of MILD detergent and give the keyboard a good scrub

4/ Wait for all to dry out

5/ carry on

If this fails then you can clean the whole thing in the kitchen sink (make sure it is properly dried out though).... or take it apart with a screwdriver and clean the bits individually (not recommended) or get a new one (recommended).

Contact the user called 'red square'. His keyboard's been fucked from his first post. The illiterate, Gareth ****.

When I saw this I interpreted 'spastic keyboard' as a keyboard for spastics. Have you considered this as a possible reason for the error?

Take to the shop and stump up is my advice.

Thanks for the advise all,I ended up downloading a small prog that allowed me to set up my own keys and used the UK English template.
Now the only problem is my N key does not work where I hit the keyboard in frustration

I fitted a new keyboard on my laptop recently, got it off ebay for less than a tenner. Have no fear the worst thing that can possibly happen is to totally ruin your laptop. My keyboard ribbon connector has to be raised to 45 degrees before it will release, this is common apparently.
