Keyboard input into browser fields not accepted e.g. Google Search field

I am helping a friend of mine who has recently lost his sight and have run
into a problem where on his new PC running Windows XP Home Edition. His PC
has some custom configurations for sight-impaired users and I wonder if this
problem has something to do with this.

We cannot type anything into a browser field e.g. in a Google search box at
www.google.com. The strange thing is that both IE and Firefox which I tried
accept input into the address bar/box but not in any
other field in the browser!!


I think it might be the keyboard maybe a driver but I am looking for any
help or suggestions on what might be causing it and how to fix it. I have
tried to update the driver for the keyboard but have had any success.


Thanks,
