I am using a mechanical keyboard and one day when I am using it, suddenly some of the key became 'stuck' and when I press button like D, it go to the desktop. So what had happen? Us it a virus or what could it be??

When you press the key, is it returning to it's original position? As in, it isn't staying in the 'down' position?

If so, gently pry it up or use a key removal tool (most mechanical keyboards come with one)

If not, uninstall/reinstall your keyboard driver.

This should be moved to external hardware

When the Windows Key is pressed with the D key you will be returned to the Desktop.
When the Windows Key and the R key is pressed the Run Box will be brought up, Is this also happening?
If So look at the Windows Key.

Since this appears to be a External hardware problem and not a software problem I am moving this to the External Hardware forum.


Good Luck

Ya, that's happening. But I only pressed the D key and the R key and things are coming out. I checked the keys and the key are physically alright and I had cleared the dust inside and the problem is still happening.

That is happening because the Windows key switch is closed as if the key is pressed. One possibility is that the switch has gone bad or that something is holding it closed.

Are you able to remove the windows key? If so take a good look to be sure the switch underneath the key is moving freely.

I think non of the key are stuck as the problem happened suddenly and about 6 of the keys are not responding.
