    Ok guys, one of you computer buffs may know.

    Suddenly, this morning my enter key has started to put x
    instead of submitting.

    Like thisx
    x

    The numeric reads fine, done a keyboard function check and the enter key value is different than x but submits as x enter, and the x key drops down a line instead of entering just a number.

    Is the keyboard shot or have I done something with my fat fingers. question mark seems to be down too:thumb:

    Are any of the keyboards wireless - have you checked the batteries in the keyboard - mine starts to miss letters when they are running down - (now ducks & run for cover)
