    my gf has a dell laptop and the keyboard keeps on getting screwed up. she will punch in keys and the wrong characters will pop up. or the enter key will stop working.

    i don't know much, but i figure that this is software related because the problem will just go away on its own or go away when she restores it.

    anyone know what's up here?

    cable may be loose on the keyb>mobo, or moisture on the keyb.
    mine pops out to access the mem and bios batt, check for any way to bring it out, shake it and check the connections
