Having problems with your Packard Bell PC Laptops ?

Unable to type without holding down shift key!

\015 I have a packard bell easynote r4560. all of a sudden when i started my laptop up after it being in standby, some of the keys were not registering when i was typing and then some started coming out in a different order to how i had typed them! some of the keys worked at some times then at other times i would have to hit the key 20 times before it would work and some just refuse to work at all. i restarted my computer many times but it made no difference. the only way i can type properly (and how i am typing now!) is by having the caps lock on and holding down the shift key (alternatively, i could type without the caps lock but this would all be in capitals!) obviously this becomes difficult for using numbers, unless I put the num lock on but then the buttons to turn the num lock on and off often don't work. i thought maybe i had hit a random button without realising it but i went through all my functions and nothing changed. i tried the different profiles on my computer and it does not seem to be limited to one profile. i was trying to clean under my keypad but couldn't work out how to lift it up (although i am sure i have managed to do this before somehow!) please help, i am at my wits end! and my little finger is hurting from having to hold down the shift key the entire time...!\015
