  1. Have you tried to clean / blow out your keyboard? You can get dirt buildup within the keyboard, which can cause keys to depress when you press another key.
  2. I tried cleaning it to no avail. Thanks for the tip though, never thought of that
  3. The trouble with wireless keyboards is that the batteries in them don’t last for a long time. Have you changed the batteries?
  4. Yes, I put brand new fresh batteries in.
  5. I've even tried the keyboard on another computer, and still functions improperly
  6. I have exactly this problem with my keyboard - maily letters on the left of it. The problem just suddenly appeared one day. Strangely if I unplug it and plug it back in it works fine...
