I have noticed strange behaviour where we I press right-shift and the letter M, nothing happens. This is a Windows 7 PC. It doesn't affect any other key combos. I have tried to unplug both the wireless received and the mouse receiver. It is a Microsoft Sculpt keyboard/mouse combo. Here is a photo. The drivers are fine. Any other suggestions?

If it's a multimedia keyboard check that one of the multimedia keys isn't stuck. This seemed to cause this error for a few people.

Thanks for your help. I cleaned the keyboard, put in fresh batteries and it started to work again! Thanks for your help!
