Unnecesary Shortcut


My laptop today acted up on me that I almost missed all of my assignments on diet pill reviews - I'm doing a bit of research on how these diet and fat burning medications work on the human body.

What happened is that the CTRL key acted as if its being pressed. Its active the whole day rendering the rest of the keys useless - and it automatically performs shortcuts which I really don't need. CTRL plus other keys means a new task - thus making the unnecessary shortcuts.

I almost threw my laptop on the wall and smashed the keys into pieces due to frustration.

The resolution? I rebooted the whole drive. Now I lost all of my precious files especially my pictures. I hope this fix is permanent - I don't want to send this notebook back to Australia.

Have you had the same with this sticky keys issue? Do you think its a virus or a hardware malfunction? Any thoughts?
