Experiencing an odd problem as of late, and after a little bit of looking around, it seems I'm not the only one with this problem.

While typing or playing a game, my PC will beep and skip the key I just pressed (or in the case of gaming, get stuck moving in one direction). I did see a trial-and-error solution from Microsoft who says it's most likely a start-up item that's interfering with the OS and to do a clean boot to narrow it down to the precise program that's causing the problem. I'll do that, but wanted to know if anyone else had this issue and was able to resolve it or at least know a common cause so I can address that specifically. The other thing in the back of my head is that I recall not having this problem until I tried alt-tabbing out of Oblivion, like a moron. Can alt-tab create this issue in certain situations? Is there a fix for that?

Specs:
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
Motherboard: EVGA NVIDIA 680i SLI
CPU: Intel 2.4ghz Core 2 Duo (E6600) and overclocked to 3.4ghz
RAM: 6gb Corsair Dominator SLI-ready at rated specs and timings (PC8500, I think, and lowered clock rate for 1:1 ratio with FSB)
HD: 640gb Western Digital Caviar at 7200 RPM
Audio: Onboard HD
Video: Two EVGA 8800GT Akimbo Superclocked in SLI mode

Thanks in advance all!

You are sure you do not have an issue with stickykeys? Check your control panel for EASE OF ACCESS CENTER settings and check what settings you have set for the keyboard.

Some features were created for handicaped users and those include some keyboard settings.

You might also check if you have a stuck key on your keyboard, which could cause the beeping you hear.

Yep, checked both of those things, forgot to mention that. StickyKeys is turned off and I don't have a stuck key. Furthermore, it's never the same key, it could be the space bar, q, w, a number, etc. This tells me there's a glitch somewhere.

This happens to me if I disregard a notice that has popped up, such as 'cookiewall'.
