Recently my left key seems to go psycho and will repeatedly act as if it is being pressed. This makes it impossible to type anything without doing it backwards. At the moment it seems to happen once or twice a sentence. I tried holding it down and unplugging the keyboard, and it instantly stopped. When it went crazy and I unplugged the keyboard, it kept happening. I was wondering if there was some virus out there that could cause this, it's really annoying me.

Hi MadnessLover,

Sorry for the delay, this forum is very busy right now.

Frankly, my first thought on reading your post is that this is likely a hardware problem. My first suggestion is to borrow a known good working keyboard from another computer. Install the good keyboard in your machine and see if you still have the same behavior.

You say you unplugged the keyboard without powering off your machine. If your keyboard is USB, this is okay. If it is a PS2 type (small round plug) then this is not recommended.

When you do do the swap, power off each computer before connecting or disconnecting a PS2 keyboard.

If changing the keyboard solves the problem then you need a new keyboard. If it does not, then we will take a look at possible malware issues.

Let me know either way.

Dave

Swapped keyboards and still have the same problem occasionally. This is a new computer I just put together, so something might be wrong with the motherboard, or maybe some conflicting drivers. Problem is that if I switch motherboards I have to format my hard drive and install different drivers, so if I manage to get another motherboard I won't be able to tell if it's the motherboard or the drivers.

Good to talk to another system builder.

Were both keyboards the same type (USB or PS2)? If so try a keyboard of the other type. If this is a motherboard fault, then it should not affect both types of keyboard.

Re: drivers, is this a fancy keyboard with its own drivers? It could be those rather than the motherboard drivers. I'm not sure a motherboard (chipset) driver is even required for keyboard function. After all, a PS2 keyboard will work in DOS, and in newer mobos so will a USB keyboard (if a BIOS setting enables this).

Let me know what you find.

Dave
