    our keyboard has stopped working and the only keys that work are "b" and "n" but when you press them they don't stop and go on forever.
    the keyboard came as a package with an advent pc. our operating system is vista if that is of any benefit. (desktop)
    its a usb keyboard
    please provide any info possible to solve this situation as i have a level exams in a week and need to access the pc

    many thanks in advanced

    I had this problem a while ago... Most of the keys wouldn't work, except for a few but when you pressed them they didn't work properly (for example, B would present as a space.) Turned out that my motherboard was 'dying' and couldn't see the keyboard.
