My computer has fun with me sometimes and then it goes away. I suppose if it had fangs or whips I might not be here...
You do recall that if you hit certain keys rapidly a few times in a row it turns on Sticky Keys (REAL WINDOWS FEATURE, found in XP)? Makes you wonder if some Microsoft emgineers didn't get really drunk one night and invent all these 'easter eggs' doesn't it?
After 29 years using computers, 22 with Windows I figure I practice swearing at servers and the junk I usually build myself. It tends to clear by itself.
While you're at it clear the CMOS by pulling the battery and pull the RAM. Let it sit for awhile, read the manual, put it together, reconfigure BIOS and F8 on the reboot to select the last known working configuration.
If none of that changes it's mind, like I said change your settings.
I gave up figuring why it does some things because I would never find out and it would apparently behave again and who knows why?
If you've ever had a cat that stalks it's prey and stops to clean itself in the middle, that is a computer more or less.
