Dude I was really freaking out when this happened to me. I have been having a string of bad luck and this seemed to be par the course. Thought either my laptop or my harddrive was quitting. Tried what you said and it worked instantly. Thank you so much.

Hey, I had a similar problem, in that some letters were typed at the same time. I got it solved at the moment, by following the instructions in this thread: 24692 keyboard mess up after shift key held too lon

i.e. hold both shift keys for a few seconds.

I do not know why it works though, so just a tip.
thanks helped on the ee pc.
fn+f11 helped me as well!!!! I suggest that everyone just tries each suggestion till something works :)
what about on a mac?
Thanks a ton , it worked for my acer laptop.
press ctrl and shift
Thank you
I had had the same problem and tried all the suggested answers here without effect.

The one answer I haven't seen, here or elsewhere, which did work was to update the BIOS.

The keyboard problem appeared after I had cleaned out and reinstalled XP and installed Microsoft Office 2007 on an IBM laptop Z60m.

A superb techie spent three hours trying to find the answer. He found most of the answers suggested here, plus several others, including a Microsoft statement "recognizing the problem." Eventually, he tried updating the BIOS, which worked. But he thought of that himself. Nowhere did he find anything suggesting updating the BIOS.
