AutoCAD LT 2012 Crashes when I keyboard input.

The program crashes when I try to enter numbers.For example when I want to move a line 12" and select move then go to type in 12 the AutoCAD program disappears.  I am using Windows 7. This is a new problem. I have been running the program for a year without this problem.

It also just crashed when I tried to drag move and end point. I have tried to repair and reinstalled AutoCAD neither has worked. I also restored the computer to a point one month back when it was still working. Any other ideas.

Is it only when you do these things? i.e. when you type numbers or wnen you drag an item?

 

Does this occur when you use the numeric keypad, the keboard numbers or both? Do you get any error messages at all after the crash? Have you installed the latest service packs? have you recently used a registry optimiser for your PC? Have you recently moved location of files where your autocad licence is located?

 

Need more info....

So far it is only when I do those two things.  When typing in numbers it occurs on both the numeric keypad and the keyboard numbers. I get no error message. The program just disappears. I tried installing the latest services packs after this occurred but it did not help. I have not used a registry optimiser or changed the location of the files for the autocad licence.

Have you tried the restore default settings program located in the START > PROGRAMS > AUTODESK > AUTOCAD 2012 folder?

I am having the same problem described above.  I tried resetting to default settings as instructed with no fix to the problem.

My AutoCAD LT 2012 is running on Windows 7 64 bit and my Product Updates adn Service Packs on my AutoCAD are up to date.  The program crashes with any input from the keyboard.  This problem just started today.  Very frustrating.  Need to get some work done.  Hope some one out there has a solution.

Just a thought...have you made sure that the keyboard settings are correct for the system. i.e for win7 in the bottom right of the screen (not autocad screen) is a picture of a keyboard, make sure the settings are correct.

Its gone from crashing from the use of the keyboard to crashing at any point while I am updating a drawing.  There is no pattern of use that triggers the crash.  This is happening on a brand new Dell Precision M6700.  I am going to see if I am having the same problem on my Dell XPS which i was using previously.

Its begining to sound like you might have some sort of a virus? Do you have custom LISP routines loaded? if so unload them and try your software. Scan your computer with the most up to date AV software.

 

Also another thought, your comuter keyboard might be shot. If so try another keyboard to see if the same symptoms occur
