A colleague of mine is using a X60 with an Ultrabase at his office, and he's experiencing some weird errors that I can't figure out. It's not critical in any way, but rather a constant annoyance.
Every now and then while he's typing some text in whatever application, a random letter will appear and bugger up the spelling of the words. This happens all the time, more or less every 2-3 minutes. It does not matter if he's using a USB-keyboard attached to the Ultrabase, or the keyboard on the X60 itself. I reckoned it might be a faulty keyboard, but seing as this happens on every keyboard I'm not so sure about this.
Example: "My colleague types this" but what appears on-screen is for instance: "My colleague trypes this." (an "r" mysteriously appeared)
All these spelling errors are frustrating, as they happen all the time. At least he's forced to spell check all his documents, but I can see that this is annoying in the long run.
What can cause this kind of behavior? I was hoping I'd avoid a reinstall of the computer. I reckon I'll install another disk, boot it up, and see if the errors still persist. If so, I reckon it's hardware related.
If anyone's experienced anything similiar, please let me know :-)
Sometimes Norton is a case of cure being worse than the malady.
Try NOD 32. They offer free download for a 30 days fully functional trial version. You'll need to disbale Norton before you install anothetr product, other the two might fight each other and virtually disable your PC.
