is the keyboard wireless? did you have another one of the same model, that is on a shelf behind you with somthing resting on the q key...
The Great Randini: No, it is hard wired, Microsoft Sidewinder.
helpstar: Idk, I will try it next
Possibly being contacted by the Q Continuum from Star Trek. I'd take them up on it if they offer you unlimited super powers.
Is the connection USB or PS/2?
I have the same problem. This damn "q"! My laptop keyboard is a PS/2 but i use a USB one. I unplugged it but no change.
Clean your Laptop keyboard, there could be dust and dirt underneath the keys. You should disassemble the keyboard, to clean it and look after the correct fitting of the keyboard flex cable. On youtube are how to´s.
