My pc is being so annoying tonight and i wondered whether it was just having a random bad night or if i could fix some of the weird probs i'm having. Ok for starters it won't go down a line when i press return. Before it wouldn't type any letters except the oens with the funny accents above them but this has now stopped. Whenever i scroll down using the scroller thingy inbetween the buttons on the mouse it changes the text size in the internet explorer. If i scroll down it goes super tiny and if i scroll up it goes massive. Thanks for any help you may be able to give:)

That's what I always say.

Suprisingly it works on my PC when it's make a loud humming noise. You jsut kick the side of it, hard, and it shuts up. If a friend is sitting here I say "Give it a kick" and they boot it for me.

I've discovered a less brutal way to shut it up though. I push the front panel in a bit more with my hand and it works better then the kick.

Kick my friends PC and it shuts down. Thats funny.

Yeah, just reboot...

Mine's going really slow and annoying and crappy...

After a reboot though it's like it's brand new!

It sounds to me like your pc is doing its very best to drive you insane! I had that text problem when scrolling before and it remedied itself after I rebooted. As for the other problems, I've never come across them so I can't help there.
