View Full Version : Computer going nuts!!

24-10-2003, 12:23 AM
My Computer has developed a new attention seeking device!
The keyboard lights sometimes flash for no reason & the speaker bleeps.
At other times a string of 4's will appear on the screen.
I have done virus scans & Spyware scans but found nothing.

It may be my imagination but this seems to have something to do with the Ethernet connection. When I have the router connected to USB it doesn't seem to do it.
Any ideas?

A bit more information might help, like your OS, network settings, etc.

If you're using Win XP or 2000, try disabling the ethernet connection, and see if the symptons still persist.

And this thing doesn't sound like any serious virus or spyware.

Do you have the option to connect your router by ethernet rather than USB, ie, dual connection type (USB modems/routers are finicky things)? If you do try it on ethernet, I'm guessing that your keyboard and/or mouse is USB??
