Keyboards are cheap. Buy a new one.

That sounds harsh, but you basically have to take the keyboard apart and manage to get it back together again right in order to fix one. It's not worth the trouble.

Yeah just buy a new one. Unless it's a laptop. Then I'm not sure what you could do.

are you sure you you don't have sticky keys on? If you do, Go to Control Panel>Accessibility options and uncheck sticky keys....some computers automatically turn it on if you hit shift 5 times real fast. It is also a great joke to do to a co-workers keyboard when he steps away and doesn't log out!

You can get a new one for next to nothing.

nice call :clap:



agreed ........ it's much more likely to be a software problem than having both shift keys all the sudden go bad.

Don't stickykeys get turned off after a restart?

not in my experience


usually they haunt you like the ghost of a ex, who died of a heart attack, after she found you in bed with her sister.
