stuck key?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
my main computer acts like the " - " key is stuck down. It is almost impossible to login, and the problem continues after logging in. I don't think its the keyboard because when i unplug it, it still happens, ex. if i click in a text box with the keyboard unplugged it still happens. The pattern is irregular too. Sometimes it stops and goes, and sometimes it will just keep going. I don't know why this is happening. I have restarted the computer many times but has done nothing. Problem just started happenning today. I am on a different computer since i cant type on that one.

Please help

i dont think the keyboard is the problem because when i unplug the keyboard it still happens. It is a wireless keyboard.

My computer is in the basement and is pretty cold since the door was left open. It is winter here. The thermonitor reads 60 degrees F but it feels alot colder. Could the cold temperature cause the computer to act like this? I have turned the computer on and waited 10 minutes to see if it would warm up and get rid of the problem but did nothing.

Edit: took your advice and changed the keyboard. The problem is now gone. Thanks!
