I recently switched keyboards on my computer. I had a Logitech
keyboard. It works fine; I just didn't like the physical design of the
keyboard. I replaced it with an older model Sun keyboard. Now
whenever I hold down the SHIFT key while playing certain games I'll
hear a beep from the computer's internal speaker. It will also
sometimes beep if I hold down the SHIFT key for an extended period of
time while using a program such as wordpad or notepad. Please note,
this has nothing to do with the Accessibilty Options in the Windows
Control Panel. I hooked up my original keyboard and the problem went
away. I like the Sun keyboard much better but I'm wondering if the
beeping could cause a problem. The motherboard is an Intel 875pbz with
a 2.6 GHz Northwood processor and 512 MB DDR 400 RAM. I have Windows XP
Home Edition installed with Service Pack 1. The computer is not
connected to the internet.

PS2 with an adapter from the old AT style connector?
