Hello all,

Recently my keyboard started causing me issues, first my del key would shut down my computer so i system restored it, now my left alt key puts my computer to sleep, ctrl keys don't work, my number keys about the QWERTY keys don't work, and my windows key shuts down my computer.

I've tried changing USB ports, Malwarebytes, doesn't catch it, the problem doesn't persist with the onscreen keyboard.

I'm currently running windows 8, I've searched around for a solution but for some reason all of the solutions they've offered others haven't worked for me. So if anybody could please help me point out and fix this annoyance, that would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
