    Hi there,

    I'm very concerned that I'm about to be forced to buy a new wireless keyboard for my iMac. The wireless keyboard has an issue where when I use certain keys, two letters will be typed. It's not random. The line of keys 1,q,a,z and 5,t,g,b are linked. When I type a 1, I get 15. When I type a t, I get qt. When I type g, I get ag. The 1qaz line always gets typed before the 5tgb line.

    The power to the keyboard is working fine, as are all the other keys. I fear that since it's not just a sticky key or anything like that, that this might be an electrical problem and the keyboard is just dead now.

    Is there anything I can do?

    I reset the PRAM. It did nothing. I also lifted off the keys and tried to clean them. It did nothing.

    Should I assume that this means I need a new keyboard?
