My laptop is going haywire when I click an icon it goes to the icon all the way to the left. And my keyboard its going nuts al

Well first, be sure that nothing got spilled on the keyboard and that none of the keys are stuck. Then if that isn't the case.

Try this...

1. Uninstall the keyboard driver.
2. Reboot the laptop. (Yes, without reinstalling the driver).
3. The driver should auto install when the computer reloads.

If that doesn't fix the issue, you may want to try starting the computer in "Safe Mode" and see if the problem persists. If it doesn't happen in "Safe Mode" then you have something (virus, bad program, malware, etc.,) on it that is the cause and this would need to be removed.

How to enter "Safe Mode" when booting the computer.

In Windows 8 and 10...

As your computer restarts, press F8 (possibly a few times) to enter "Safe Mode"

a. Press the "F4" key to Enable "Safe Mode".
(The computer will then start in "Safe Mode" with a minimal set of drivers and services.)

b. Press the "F5" key to Enable "Safe Mode" with Networking.
( Once "Safe Mode" with Networking starts, Windows is in Safe Mode, with additional network and services for accessing the Internet and other computers on your network.)

c. Press the "F6" key to Enable "Safe Mode" with Command Prompt.
(In "Safe Mode" with "Command Prompt" starts Windows in Safe Mode, with a Command Prompt window instead of the Windows interface. This option is mostly only used by IT professionals.)

Now sign in to the computer with your account name and password. (If you have one set.) When you are finished troubleshooting, you can exit "Safe Mode" restarting your computer.


In Windows 7/Vista/XP...

1. Immediately after turning on the computer, or restarting it (usually after you hear your computer beep), tap the F8 key, repeatedly, in 1 second intervals.

2. The computer will then display hardware information and run a memory test.

3. Next the "Advanced Boot Options" menu will appear.

4. In the "Advanced Boot Options" menu use the arrow keys to select "Safe Mode" or "Safe Mode with Networking" and press ENTER.
