    Question help.. keyboard repeats number 4..?

    My Key board is only showing number four on screen.

    No matter what keys I press.

    Is this a virus or keyboard problem?

    any ideas on how i can fix?
    Ive tried googling virus list number 4 repeat but couldn't find anything..

    Cheers and Have a MERRY CHRISTMAS!

    Welcome to PressF1

    Have you rebooted the computer? Does the number 4 key appear to be stuck down? Have you tried a different keyboard?

    Thanks for the quick replies

    I'm borrowing a old keyboard from my mates House. So hopefully that might work.

    Um... So what ever button I press it is number four even enter.
    I found this out when logged onto pc. i copied and pasted email address to log in .Hoping once rebooted it would stop..
    I assume it is still number fours appearing but.. can only see stars on start up..

    Chances are another k/board will fix it - that would be the first thing to try I'd say

    If changing the keyboard doesnt fix it, try booting into safe mode - when the PC starts, keep pressing F8. If its does by some strange chance be a software problem, the F8 key will work, as it has not loaded windows fully yet.

    if it was a hardware error I would expect the BIOS to complain with "Stuck key" or "keyboard fail" error
    Non-system disk or disk error. Replace and strike any key when ready.
