Thanks for your reply, sorry for the delay in response. It was indeed just the keyboard thankfully, was really dreading it being the PC. Go to the full post »

My keyboard for my desktop computer has randomly started playing up, pressing B opens up WMP so I assumed Ctrl or Alt was stuck. Upon opening the on screen keyboard when I press 2 I'm apparently pressing the Alt Gr button. I had the issue where the 1 key was working as both Ctrls but that seems to have stopped after several reboots. My computer constantly assumes I'm holding Alt and there shortcuts happen when typing and my 2 button doesn't do anything but change tabs because it assumes Alt is constantly pressed.
I've tried rebooting, sticky keys is not on and I've tried turning it on and off again. I've tried uninstalling the keyboard drivers as well as trying different languages and layouts. I've tried KeyTweak go disable Alt Gr but it still persists. I tried spamming the keys but no change. I haven't tried another keyboard because I don't have a spare and can't get another until tomorrow. I've read so many forums and had no luck, any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

:welcome:   SophieMayk,

 

Trying a known good keyboard is the best way to check this or alternatively can you check the present keyboard on another computer, if a USB type keyboard you can try it on a notebook computer if you have one.

 

The onscreen keyboard also being off may suggest that the problem lays elsewhere I`m afraid.
