Unhappy intermittent enter keys

I have a rather strange problem, I intermittently lose both of my enter keys. I thought it might be the keyboard itself so I replaced it, but I still have the same problem. I am running XP Home, Intel 875PBZ motherboard, 2.8 GHz P IV 800 MHz processor, and (now) a Microsoft Multimedia Keyboard. Any information would be appreciated.

Is this confined to Office Applications only? Does the mouse work?

It affects all applications, they don't work anywhere. All the other keys work as they should.

Sounds like it could be a virus, or corrupt file of some sort. It could also be the motherboard. Try running a thorough virus scan and windows repair.

You could also try booting into Safe Mode to see if you have the same problems.

Good luck!
