    Not sure if this is the right board, but I'm having a problem where my delete key is apparently always pressed.

    Whenever I select any text, it deletes anything after the cursor, or if I click an icon either on my desktop, in a folder, or in the start menu, it spams the delete file prompt. I'm having a similar issue with the period key in my numpad, but that goes away just by hitting numlock.

    I know for a fact that it's not a hardware issue, since I've tried three different keyboards, one of them new out of the box.
    Any help would be amazing, because every thread I've been able to find on this just says it's a stuck key and then it peters out.
