View Full Version : Up down arrow buttons acting weird
07-29-2009, 02:56 PM
My computer running Vista is running great with one exception the up/down buttons. I have no virus. In some situations, not all situations, but consistently, when I hit the up down, mostly the down, it goes to the very bottom of the page instead of a line at a time. Anyone have any idea why this started to happen and any suggestions to fix it?

Is it acting like a stuck key? Maybe you might want to pry those keys off & clean out underneath them.
Or is is just skipping straight to the bottom of the page?

Hi Jeffbx, It just jumps to the bottom of the page in one swoop like if the key were programed to go to bottom.

Laptop or desktop computer? If it's a laptop, check your Fn key to make sure it's not stuck (some laptop keyboards have Page Up/Page Down or Home/End keys mapped to the arrow keys).
Worth a shot.

Hi GuruX, It's a Gateway desktop, Quad Q6600 2.4 GHZ with 4 gig ram, Vista w/service pack 1

More info on my problem. The "Page up" and "Page down" are also misbehaving.

Have you tried a different KB to see if it does the same thing? At least then you can rule out a hardware problem

What I did was go to Device Manager, delete the keyboard and reinstalled it. Made no difference. Keys acting strange are up/down and page up/down.

Try using a different keyboard.
