    Try cleaning out your keyboard with soem compressed air, or take the keycaps off and clean it out fully.

    was an accident!

    thanks for the advice, to expound the explanation, if i rest my finger lightly on the colon key and dont press it down at all it repeatedly types the colon, almost like an earth or something.
    I will try cleaning and let you know.

    thanks again

    1) It's a semicolon (press shift and you'll get a colon)
    2) You either spilled something, or otherwise damaged the keyboard such that the button below the "p" is activated and you get the ";". Agree with cleaning. If that does not do it, you can learn to hit "delete" after every "p" or take it to a repair center for better cleaning or keyboard replacement.

    It's not very consistent, is it?
    Did cleaning it out solve the pproblem?

    In the future, consult a Urologist for your p-ing problem.

    Somehow I knew this thread was going to get the responses it did. "You stallions," was unexpected.
