When I reboot my computer it has a problem as it is starting to boot up. The booting process doesn't want to complete (it stops on a black screen), and I get tat loud, annoying beep sound playing over and over repeatedly, as though I was pressing a key I shouldn't be pressing.
It also doesn't seem to be a problem in every program. In notepad++, I've never seen it behave like the Alt key was being pressed. In firefox, however, it happens all the time. I also often have trouble clicking on a minimized aim window when this is happening.
I'm not inclined to believe that it's something stuck in the key, because it's a brand new computer and hasn't gotten dirty at all. I've only used the Alt key maybe once or twice before this happened anyway.
Does anyone else have any idea about what could be going on? Any help would really be appreciated.
EDIT: I just noticed something. i brought the on-screen keyboard up, and while the problem was happening, the on-screen keyboard was NOT registering the Alt keys as being pressed. To me this seems to indicate that something is happening in software somewhere, not in the keyboard itself. if that is the case, then where should this topic go?
