well right shift isn't working as shift, it's kind of working as a right alt. right alt is working as right alt. right ctrl is working as right alt. i think... it's a compaq keyboard and all of my right functions ( well mainly just alt, start, ctrl, and right shift. ) aren't doing what they're supposed to. it's a compaq keyboard, i don't know how to find the model. but yeah, can someone help me with this problem??? i use right shift to capitalize my letters and make characters like ?><"{P)_(*^&@^#^@ all that fun stuff. it's a USB keyboard.

okay i just used something to see what was being pushed. when i press shift ctrl is also pushed at the same time.

so yeah. can someone help me with this? could i possibly disable right ctrl or set my keys to do something else.

Sounds like you have accessability features turned on or you have a sticky key set. Sometimes happens when i get coffee in my keys too.
Try turning off accessability functions or unplug keyboard clean it with alcohol on a papertowel. Or check your sticky keys settings in control panel keyboards.

Don't be afraid of taking it apart and cleaning it, pretty simple get your screw driver and your digital camera take shot as you take it apart and just revers the procedure going back. I have not used a camera but then again I am comfortable tearing into these things, I clean my keey boards about once a year sooner if I screw up!
