Keyboard randomly spamming 2


  • Hello, it first started occuring a few weeks ago. It would only happen during games of starcraft 2. the keyboard would just start spamming 222222 and i couldnt type anything else until i restarted the computer. I thought it was starcraft 2 related so i tried 2 other keyboards, 1 usb and 1 ps2, and it happened on both of them. It was then that i decided to install service pack 1(i use 7 home premium) that didnt help. So just now i was browsing some websites and it started happening again so its definitely not just happening in starcraft 2, I am pretty sure its not a hardware problem as i have tried 3 different keyboards and tried both usb and ps2 ports, and i have no idea what to do next.
