Hi, im not sure if this is the right section to post in but i hope that some1 will be able to help me out with my problem.

My shift key is not really working properly... when i hold down my right shift key and press x nothing would appear and it would make these beeping sounds. But when i let go of the shift key but still hold down the x button then the x button get capitalized. I tried holding down the left shift key with the x button but it worked perfectly fine, x would appear capitalize and there would be no beeping sound. I'm pretty sure the x button doesn't have a problem. But i tried holding down the right shift key while holding a and it was perfectly fine. Then i tried holding down the left shift key with q and it would have the same problem like when i was holding down the x button with the right shift key. I tried searching up ways to fix this problem but i couldn't really find any. I tried shutting down my computer and unplugging and plugging bak the keyboard but it didn't work. I tried cleaning the shift button but that didn't work either.

I'm not sure the reason for this, but i think it might have sumthing to do with me cleaning the keyboard maybe, but im not sure. Before this happned, i cleaned my keyboard by taking out the keys to clean the inside and putting it bak on. But i left the computer on while cleaning it so im not sure if this might have affected it.

If someone knows how to fix this or thinks they know how, plz let me know. thx (I noe the post is pretty long >.<)

Unless you have some compelling reason to keep that keyboard (ie it's an expensive one) I would simply replace it. A simple and easy fix when you consider that a standard keyboard costs only a few pounds.

Do you have another keyboard to test? That would be a good start to diagnose it. What did you use to clean the keyboard?
