Just minutes ago, I was terrified by my computer’s behavior when I tried to write my post for today. I stared at the monitor in shock, trying to figure out what could have gone wrong. This should not be my post actually, but since halloween is coming in three days so I might as well share with you this freaky problem that my computer bumped into.
Firstly, I got panicked when I couldn’t access my computer yesterday, thought it caught some virus or what. But good heavens, hubby said that only the power supply unit was not working anymore. Another good thing was that the computer store would close at 7pm so he could buy a new one. You know, when something like this happens with my computer, I feel like I’m losing my mind, I want it fixed right away. The fact that we have three PC’s and two laptops doesn’t make me calm when my favorite PC get cracked. Ahuh, I married a computer geek, but he’s no expert actually, ssshh…lol!
Anyhow, the changed in PSU had somehow caused my keyboard not to function properly. I noticed it the moment I used after hubby fixed it. Some letters or numbers didn’t show up when I hit them. I thought it was only temporary but it’s even worse today. I have this Logitech cordless mouse and keyboard and when I checked the panel set point, everything seemed configured, no problem at all. So when hubby came, he then checked what it was. But he couldn’t figure out anything so I continued to check over and over the panel without finding any hint of solutions. Hubby went to the other computer and later he came to me and said he also had a problem with that computer when he tried to strike letters and numbers. We were both confused.
I was not in the best of moods when I logged in to my WordPress dashboard to continue with my post, while hubby went again to the other computer. While I was staring at the title of my post and thought if it was good enough, something spooky came out just at the beginning of the title. I could see that my title was moving to the right and the words, “sudden keystrokes appear” pushed my title further right. Believe me, I didn’t type those words, I didn’t strike anything in my keyboard. I began to suspect it must be some kind of a virus. Ahh! I screamed and called hubby and he rushed to me. I pointed those words and I said they just came in like magic in the screen. But when hubby read the words, he said he typed those in the other computer. Now, what he just said really made me laugh! And we both laughed. That was the first time I encountered such thing in my computer. What he strikes for words in his computer also shows in my computer. Sounds spooky but funny in sense if you who is typing what. Then he figured out that both our cordless keyboards were in the same frequency. I found out later that the keyboard security in the panel should be activated so that the other computer could not detect my computer’s keystrokes, and vice-versa. Whoo! This wireless thing…
