    Keys randomly binding together


    when ever i had the num lock on and only when its on all the num pad keys are bound to some other key and the space bars is bound to 0 if i type "1" it comes out "12". also the arrow key to go forward will jump all the way to the end of the page. i tried uninstalling the drivers, changing the layout and nothing in working. its really getting annoying can someone please help me before i loose my mind that would be great thanks.

    I have the keyboard for about 2 months and its just started acting like this 2 days ago. also typematic rate wasn't there

    Sounds like a faulty keyboard. If it is on a laptop, these are usually inexpensive to find and easy to replace. If it is not, try buying a new keyboard.

    Go into your BIOS and check the settings for typematic rate as well, if they exist.

    Yep, sounds like a bad keyboard. Sometines an old keybpard will do this after someone has cleaned it. Drying it thoroughly will usually work. A two month old keyboard should not be doing this, I would take/send it back... Good luck!

    Amen to that. But you really should try the keyboard into another computer and see if that really is the cause. Because otherwise it's the motherboard.
