I have a IBM thinkpad 1400. Whenever I try to use one of your PC World CD's they take forever to load , if at all, whether on internal or external CD Rom CD R/W. Any disc that I write to has this problem also. But is ok with Music CDs (bought)and Windows Instalation discs and all other software instalation disks.
Second problem my keyboard keys print double letters t=gt, g=gt, y=hy, h=hy, Backspace and F5=time and date (22:12 20/05/0), F7=]. I've tried reinstalling Windows but no luck.Any solutions

The keyboard problem could be either binding of the keys (or big fingers) or some crud bewteen the tracks of the PC board of the keyboard. You could try turning it upside down and shaking (not *too* hard). If the keytops are binding, they can often be cleared by gentle pressure in the appropriate direction.
