View Full Version : Some keys not working correctly

Can anybody help with this problem, its a bit unusual and im stumped
On my laptop when pressing the left shift button and then pressing some letter keys (a and b are the main culprits) the capital letter will often not be put on screen. Be it in word, notepad or even msn.

However, it doesnt occur with all the letters on the key pad using the left shift button, and when using the right shfit button with the same keys eg b and a, it puts up a capital A or B no problem. Im having to press some keys several times before the capital letter is put on screen.

The fact that its only some letters tells me the left shift button is working, and the fact that the letter keys work fine without pressing left shift, and with right shift tell me the letter keys are working fine.

Help! Im using a toshiba laptop with Windows 7 if it helps

Cheers for your help, I ran advanced system care(free) and it sorted it, so must have picked up something from the net at some stage

if it picked up something Id suggest you do a full virus and spyware scan. Could of been some sorta keylogger
