    Hi ethorik, and welcome to TSG.

    Either try the new keyboard on another computer or try another known good keyboard with the same connection type on your computer. That should tell you if the new keyboard is defective or there is a problem with how your computer is handling keyboard input.

    In the second case, tell us the brand and model number of the computer or its motherboard, what operating system is running on the computer, and the brand and model number of the new keyboard.

    The D and F keys are next to each other, so I suspect a couple of things.

    When you press the D key, does it display "DF" like it does when you press the F key?

    Thanks for that clarification in post #4.

    Examine the D key carefully and see if it has a manufacturing imperfection that's protruding underneath the left side of the F key.
    If there is, that would cause BOTH the D and F keys to be depressed when you press ONLY the F key.
    I had that happen with a new keyboard a few years ago and had to remove a small "spur" on one of the keys.
