My keyboard spontaneously starts typing '=', but only in certain situations. Most programs (Word, Firefox, Excel, etc.) have no issues whatsoever, but those that do are starting to drive me nuts. The programs where I've specifically noticed this problem include flash apps (will auto forward through some options), screensavers (will immediately quit after starting), preview options in programs like MSPaint, certain games including Lego Universe (autoforwards through options and types the '=' in the login option). The real kicker was when I realized that I cannot develop anything for the Google Android as the emulator/virtual machine will immediately start filling in the search bar with '='s with no chance to open up any apps that I'd like to test. As you can see it's a wide variety of programs, and most are completely unrelated to each other. Any idea as to why this might be the case? Computer: Dell Inspiron 1501 Laptop OS: Windows 7 Professional 32-bit Processor: AMD Turion(tm) 64 X2 Mobile Technology TL-50 1.60 GHz Using built in touchpad and keyboard. Note: Windows 7 was added well after I'd bought the original computer and after the factory installed Vista had spontaneously stopped working one day... The current keyboard issue did not exist for about a month or two after this fresh install, but then spontaneously appeared at some point and has been wrecking havok ever since.
