So I've had a problem with my keyboard for a few days now. All of the sudden, my "letter after i" key does not work. I understand it could be a program that hotkey'd a letter on my keyboard to do something else, but I've checked every program I have installed (which isn't a lot because it's a newly built computer) and haven't found a solution. Sometimes when I restart the "letter after i" key will work and then later on it stops working.

Is there any possible way to figure out a solution to this problem because I've plugged in 3 different keyboards and they ALL give me the same problem with this one letter.

If anyone can help me I would be very appreciative since I've had my "letter after i" assigned to be my ventrilo/teamspeak/etc. push-to-talk button for over 5 years and it's annoying not being able to fix this. Let alone trying to type words like _ust and it not appearing on documents is pretty frustrating.

Thanks so much!

Yeah I just tried that, but to no avail. I have been messing around with BF3 and may have found the answer. Everytime I open up the battlelog website my "letter after i" stops working, and when i close it from my tray it starts working again. I can't find any binds though in the game or in battlelog that would make it stop working ... so weird .. i still want to be able to use my key in the game though for talking. Ugh, so frustrating, why is battlelog a POS? :p

Had same problem. Turned out it was something to do with winamp. Had the q button as the hotkey to enque a song. There was a checkbox in the global settings i needed to uncheck and i got my q back again, that or shut down winamp.
