Keyboard sometimes doesn't respond, and sometimes inputs several keystrokes at once. - Page 2

It could be a multitude of issues. I'll list some so you can try to troubleshoot.

Problems
1) USB port that your keyboard is plugged into may be bad
2) Drivers for your keyboard may be corrupt or need to be updated
3) USB controller on motherboard is going bad
4) If keyboard is wired, the wire may have a short in it
5) The keyboard has dust/dirt underneath the keys

Solutions
1) Try other USB ports on your PC
2) Try reinstalling or downloading the latest drivers from manufacturers website
3) Check device manager to see if your USB controllers are all working correctly and if they are not, you can download the USB drivers from you motherboard manufacturers website
4) Check the wire for any cuts/splits and if none are present try wiggling the cord a bit to see if you get any response ie keyboard connects/disconnects
5) Take apart your keyboard carefully and clean everything out

I know this isn't the best or conclusive list but I think it's a start. Hopefully it helps smile.gif

I tried several of these, I don't think that the motherboard is bad as I got it around July, and it seems that the problem is not the keyboard, but something with software, as some games that display text twice, for example Sandcastle builder has some problems like it displaying Rivver or BBag etc. But forums have no issue, maybe it is because sandcastle builder generates the writing every time? Not the most knowledgeable when it comes to HTML or javascript, does you have any idea what could cause software to behave like this, malicious/broken code or something, and thanks for the suggestions, I'll try the rest, it may work somehow smile.gif
