  1. sounds like your shift key is stuck mate.

    if it doesnt look it, take of the keyboard and make sure theres nothing jammed between the key and contact point.

    but thats certainly a shift key being held down. and not a virus, lol. virus's are much more malicious.

    I have tried that and i am fairly sure the shift key isnt stuck but i will have another look and let you know the outcome.thanks anyway

    i just finished cleaning the keyboard on the laptop again and for now i think it is fixed there was just bit of dust there but the right shift dosent work at all it is my daughters and i think she can manage without that key and just use the left shift key. Thanks again for your help.
  4. no problem, happy to help.

    if the key has stopped working entirely, i would imagine it was actually a faulty connection. if you need the shift key working, it should be a fairly simple repair for someone who knows their way around a computer. if you know anyone who might be able to do it that is.
