I've a problem that I have had for quite some time, probably over a year
now, but it is now beginning to really wind me up so I wonder if anyone is
having the same problem.
Basically, when you click on F12 to go to the command line, most times the
star command appears just under the icon bar as normal and I can enter
anything via the command line and then pressing enter again returns you to
Sometimes however, when pressing F12, instead of the small white area
appearing with the star command, I get the underline character flashing at
the bottom left hand side of the icon bar and the machine is stuffed at
that point. It isn't in the command line because no matter what I press it
doesn't register and it's not in the desktop because I can click on any
items with the mouse and again nothing registers.
All I can do at this point is reboot the machine.
Any ideas anyone? The reason it is getting annoying is that the backspace
key is far too near F12 for my chubby fingers. The problem occurs whether I
purposely hit the F12 key or accidently.
