Exclamation Solved: Keyboard Issues
Hey there guys, new to this forum, Having a bit of trouble with my current computer.

My current keyboard is a Razer Black widow and for some odd reason the keyboard just randomly locks up with the ctrl and alt key held down when it physically is not even pressed.

This happens very frequently (EVery Minute).

I can reboot the system and it will work for a few mins before locking up again, And the most weird thing about this is when I open the on-screen keyboard, it fixes it, but only (once again) for a few seconds before it locks up again with the exact same keys as before.

I tried four separate keyboards in different ports and the same result is present so I'm convinced that it is the system itself.
I scanned the entire pc with avira, and there were no viruses found.

So Here Are The Facts:

  • Keyboard insists that control and alt are being held
  • Sticky keys and Toggle keys are disabled, nor are they resetting at any time.
  • Keyboard works on other computers
  • All drivers are up to date
  • No yellow triangle next to the device
  • On Screen keyboard seems to fix it once a letter is clicked
  • No viruses popup with Avira
  • No suspecting services in task manager
  • After typing with the real keyboard after while i can see that both left and right control and alt are light up on the on-screen keyboard.

Please Help..
