    So for a couple weeks now my computer decided to have a mind of its own.

    The Print Screen key now turns on/off the Scroll Lock light. Then when I hit scroll lock it does nothing. I've tried unplugging the keyboard to no avail, and I'm just at a general loss as to how the hell the keys just switch functions.

    Any ideas how/why this happened and how to get my beloved Print Screen key back? :sadwavey:

    buy a new keyboard or take your time ripping the thing apart and checking for breaks in it

    Maybe you have a weird program on your computer that mapped the print screen to the scroll lock. Try running a virus scan. I used to install trojan's on my friends computers and you could switch around all their keys :).
