Have a Toshiba Satelitte A100 XP Pro SP3. When I start it normally, then it appears that the control key is being held down with any program. However, if I hold both control keys (left and right) during start-up, then the control key issue disappears. I have looked at Regional/Language settings, Accessibility options, check antivirus program (AVAST) and in the BIOS. Does anyone know why this would be happening. I have tried many suggestions such as hitting Ctlr + Fn + Alt. The laptop also has Alt Car and Verr. maj. (Cap Locks) keys

The Ctrl does not work okay. When I hold down the both ctrl keys at startup, then it does not appear to be held down. However, if I use the Ctlr key to perform an action, such as, Ctrl +a it does not work.

I meant to say the right ctrl key. The left ctrl key will operate fine when I hold both ctrl keys at startup, but not if I startup without holding the ctrl keys down.
