keyboarD issue

  chaudha 23:37 31 Aug 2008


so i haD aproblem with my olD keyboarD, some of the keys broke, so i got riD of it anD bought a new one which is the same as before. to install it all you have to Do is plug the usb cable in.

the problem is that my shift anD some other keys aren't working properly. for instance when i am in firefox, anD i want to holD shift to type a capital, it opens the 'finD' box. another problem is when i press D it is always as a capital. also shift+D anD shift+3 Don't work. this post has been Difficult to type because when ever i try anD use shift it opens up something like winDows meDia player or something when i press it with another key.

i have trieD removing it from Device manager anD restarting but that DiDn't work. any suggestions?

It could be 'StickyKeys' are turned on click here

To turn off StickyKeys, press the SHIFT key five times, and then click Cancel in the StickyKeys dialog box.

Can you try it on another PC?

Are you running Norton by any chance?

Ignore question about Norton.
On re-reading your post I just realised the problem is only with your new keyboard, is this correct? and you did not have this problem with the D on your old keyboard?

It would seem your new keyboard is faulty.
