I've got a Toshiba laptop and the keyboard is acting up. When I type "h" it puts out "lh". There are a few other keys like that as well. Does this sound like a virus or hardware issue? A replacement keyboard from Toshiba is about $75.

sounds like a f-ud up keyboard. Did you check ebay for replacements? They are usually quite a bit cheaper than from the manuf.

I have a Compaq and mine was acting up a little, too, but then I used that canned air and sprayed it out really good. Turn it upside down when you do it, though, otherwise all the junk just gets moved behind another key.

My Toshiba Laptop does this too. After I run Spybot and reboot it works fine.
