Keyboard issue

I am using a wireless keyboard but some of the keys are sticking - sometimes it will be fine, other times it doesnt register that you are hitting a key, sometimes it will then play catch up and add it 6 times and then when you hit backspace there is a big delay before it wipes out the whole line and not just the last letter! I have replaced the keyboard with a new one but the same thing is happening - is this a problem with the pc and if so what?

possibly something sugary.

On the off chance that this is the problem. Try giving it a clean

I'm with wee eddie on this one.
Your description IMO fits with a mechanical fault on the keyboard and nothing to do with its wireless connection or the PC itself.

Is it possible that someone else has had a small accident with a drink and not told you?

If you are sure that it has not been assaulted this way, then return it as faulty.

has said the keyboard has already been replaced and the problem still exists, so it points to a PC problem.

could other nearby equipment be interfering with the signal?

are the batteries ok?

is receiver firmly plugged in back of pc?
