Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. With my PC I use a keyboard with a touchpad. Its been fine for 3 months now sometimes when I start up Vista the letters wont work or when I double click anything it will bring up a properties box instead of the application

    The only way it seems to work is when I go to hardware/keyboard & update the driver, which is always the latest anyway. Any ideas what this is happening?

    ..right now my tab is scrolling through the screens instead of the page.
  2. msr

    msr LE

    Sounds like the ALT key is stuck.

  3. Or the Tab key, as we have been talking about cleaning why not unplug and give it a vacuum, carefull not to dislodge any keys!! :)

  4. Lookked down.......f@*ckin Alt key is stuck in. So that solves the tab problem. Ill vac it & see if it plays up again. Cheers.
