this happened some time ago to a colleague of mine at work, I just had to take a picture of it and share it with all of you :twisted:
Keyboard error
This is on a laptop running XP severe pitch 2 so it's not like it's an error on an old machine.

What I find hard to believe is that they actually still tell you to hit F1 or F2 when you get a keyboard error :D
It was already like that back in the early wonblows days and was already a source of laughter back then, you would thinkt they would have that fixed by now, wouldn't you? :roll:

I just googled that error for grins - looks like that is usually a misleading error. It says "keyboard", but what it really means is "mainboard in the keyboard area". Possibly a very difficult/expensive problem to solve.

Then again, sometimes it is just a bad keyboard.
