My keyboard will only work if I hold the CTRL key (or ALT key) in Flash games and in retail games. It's not a problem with patches or anything, because it's a widespread problem, not only affected by one game.
Running the most up to date version of Flash and DirectX.
It's not my keyboard's fault, I've hooked up USB keyboards and have gotten the same result.
However, if the game has a text box, my keyboard works fine, I can type in the game, I just can't do anything else (ie: use the WASD keys to move, or other...keyboard essential stuff.)
My arrow keys work, my enter works. It's the QWERTY themselves that don't work.
I have not done ANYTHING to affect it, to my knowledge. It was working fine over a week ago. I have a Lenovo laptop, running Windows 7 Service Pack 3 (I think, unless 2 is the most recent, pretty sure it was 3 though?)
There are also times when if I try to type, it'll type the numbers 0-9 in numerical order, repeating over and over again.
Thanks for any help!
