This happens about once ever 2 weeks or so, and when it does it's usually right before I shut down. Mind you, this is a really new computer (a month and a half, tops).
I'm using a Logitech G15 keyboard and it hasn't given me any errors when I'm doing anything important, but every now and then it will act as if someone or something is holding down the back-arrow key. My initial response was that the key was stuck because I spilled something in there or something and considering that the keyboard is getting to be about a year old. But the weird thing was that it was as if someone was tapping it, because when you're holding it it goes really fast but it goes at like 1 back per second, so after washing it out and whatnot in an attempt to stop it, which includes reinstalling the drivers and unplugging and re-plugging it back in, I finally decided to just restart my computer. After the restart the problem was gone, but about 2 weeks later it happened again.

So I mean, it's generally not that much of a problem, but I'd like to know what causes it. Also I kinda want a new keyboard anyway, I want a Das Keyboard (no labels on the keys) but it'll be hard parting with my G15.

Troubleshooting keyboard problems often starts with trying another keyboard in place of the problem one. Since you want a new keyboard, this may be the solution for you.

If not, we've got other things to try - just let us know.
