    Does the mouse work when this happens? have you tried a different keyboard? Can we get some details on the system? (hardware config, os etc.) We need details, details, details to help you out with your problem!

    poppy_123,

    When you say that your keyboard is halted, do you mean that when you press on a key nothing happens?

    Due the lights on your keyboard, Num Lock, Caps Lock, etc., work?

    And does your mouse work normally?

    I guess what I'm asking is: Does anything else function normally, when your keyboard stops working.

    What were you doing when it quit?

    Also, please let us know what operating system you are using and information about your computer, such as: your processor, memory, etc.

    The more information you can provide, the more likely we'll be able to help you.

    cheers

    edit: you were faster Grunt...

    Hi poppy~

    Does this happen when you boot (startup) or whilst you are online?

    Is this the same computer we talked about before?

    If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
    As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.

    When your keyboard locks how do you get it working again (a cold boot)? I will not reask all the ? but the ? asked from others will definately lead to an positive answer.

    I don't know if this is your problem but I had a similar problem however I found out that a few pins on the keyboard plug were missing replaced the keyboard and everything was good.

    thanks guys, this happend suddenly, but now It is ok, I think this was happening due to some unknown intruders in my system, I scan my system through "hijackthis.exe" software and remove all malware entries in registry, now its working fine.
    thanks to all.

    Glad to hear everything worked out. And hijackthis is great program as well. If you don't already have a spybot removal program such as Spybot S & D and Adaware, I would recommend to get one also. This will help you keep malware out.
