I am recently having a terrible issue with my laptop. It's a crappy eMachine that I inherited, so I know it's terrible, but very recently, as I type, it's begun to insert asterisks. It litters what I am typing with the character. The longer I type, the more it does it. It seems to happen when I hold a key down for longer than a moment. Like if I press the Shift key or any of the arrows, it will insert a string of asterisks for as long as I press the key down. I ran Norton Anti-Virus and it came back with nothing. Anybody have any ideas on this? I'd really appreciate any help. It's driving me NUTS!!!
Type the name, model, operating system and the problem into google.
I was thinking the same thing about dust. I bought a can today. I wasn't sure if I could remove the keys, though. If I can, I'll try that. Thanks.
