Cursor continues to the Right
« on: Tue Sep 27, 2011 - 22:38:01 »
Cursor continues to the right till the end of the page and does not start new line when using space bar. Computer works fine when typing or using tab. Somewhere in my mind there is something to do with text wrap, but I cannot find it or I'm saying it incorrectly. I may have not discovered all the symptoms yet either.

Thanks for any help.  ::smile::

What program are you using when it happens?

My first thought: Is your shift key stuck down?  Shift-space creates a non-breaking space in many applications that behaves the way you've described.

Thanks for your response Jarrod.

I just checked my Shift keys plus all other keys for sticking, and page setup seems fine. It probably just needs to go in for an oil and filter change. ::smile::

Try uninstalling your keyboard and mouse drivers and re-boot.

Thanks Stan, but it has cleared up, and I do not remember the solution to the problem; something like the umpteenth attempt at restarting, or kicking the computer as I'm very technically minded.  ::destroyingcomputer::
