    Windows 8.1


    I think the problem is that, there is some key that is being pressed automatically.
    That is why in the browser, If I type h, History tab is opening!
    I unchecked the sticky keys option in control panel. Disabled it totally
    I can hear some key sounds in the background sometimes!
    But I do not see any Ctrl/ Shift key selected in the Sticky key-board
    It is a laptop> Dell Inspiron 15 R N 5010

    Bummer! Did you do the other things we suggested?

    Does this happen upon boot or does it take a while?

    Hippsie and Midou,

    The problem dies down after I re-boot. But it pops-up within 10 minutes after I start the machine!
    And this is the case with both the keyboards
    I tried it with both the inbuilt keyboard and USB keyboard. The issue is there....
    I do not Remember how many times I battered my keyboard

    Maybee there is a problem with your shortcuts try to boot PC on safe mode then tell me if the problem happens there if so reboot the pc into normal mode then type in search cmd then right click it then run it as admin then paste this and press enter: Chkdsk /r /f
    then reboot pc and let is scan (it may take a time).

    The reason I ask is if it's a laptop it may be overheating.

    Please update your specs on your forum profile or post them here to better help you, otherwise we're guessing. Thanks.
