I keep getting an error that the Control Key is pressed... Every time it happens, the keyboard only responds to functions associated with the Control key. Always after Windows (XP) is loaded.

Try another keyboard?

Try the Keyboard Diagnostics:

1.) With the computer off, locate the failing key and firmly tap it repeatedly.

2.) Drop the keyboard ONE INCH from a hard surface. Note: Fold in legs of keyboard before dropping.

3.) If the error code goes away, please test the key.

4.) Replace the keyboard if it fails again.

This should work for you!

All the best :)

It's NOT a stuck key people. 4 different keyboards on the same computer and the same problem is happening. Once again, IT'S NOT A STUCK KEY.
