Im having problems with my keyboard. When i type, two letters are type when i press a single key. For example, pressing "Q" on the keyboard will show up as "QQ" on the screen. Also, when pressing the numbers keys located along the top of the keyboard, Symbols show up in place of the letters, as well as all letters in CAPS. It appears that the Shift, CAPS LOCK, and NUM LOCK keys may be stuck. Please help, thank you.


The keyboard is emachines brand is plugged in via PS/2 Port on tower, no special software is needed. All drivers are up-to-date.

Try a different keyboard?

Keyboards and mice have been known to suddenly go bad, a good reason to always have at least one working spare for each.

If it's merely keys sticking...turn the keyboard upside down...shake out debris...consider cleaning it at some point in future.

I doubt it's a virus, more likely your keyboard is going bad. Do you have another one to try? Or maybe borrow one from a friend? I've gone through several keyboards, the last one a couple of weeks ago and it was only a couple of years old. Try changing it out, see if that does it... :thumbsup:

I tried the same keyboard on another computer and it worked fine, so the problem isn't with the keyboard, but its with the computer. Anyone have any ideas what to do?
