Hey all, so I have my friend's Acer Aspire One KA70 (AOD250 on their website, bastards lol) and it's having a very funky keyboard issue...
It's as if the windows key is malfunctioning and being hit/held all on its own.
I reinstalled Win7 (since her's was running slow and I wanted to rule out software), and it seemed like everything was good but then it started doing the same thing as before.
90% of the time, any key that's pressed that has a function combination with the windows key, activates that function.
For instance if I tried to spell Europe, it's likely inputting Win+E (open explorer), Win+U (open ease of access), Win+R (open run dialog box)...since that's what it does.
Even with my usb keyboard plugged in, the windows key is still being triggered.
Now I'm thinking *maybe* if I change the keyboard itself out, maybe the problem will go away (I'd likely try popping off that key first to check for any kind of membrane/switch damage), and while the keyboard is off, I'll boot with just the usb keyboard to confirm it's a hardware issue with the native keyboard.
I have also noticed that to open the start menu it takes two, and some times three depressions of the windows key before it pops up (it's not lag either, since I can click the menu open and closed with no issues at all).
If I have any new developments, I'll let you guys know.
(Basically, I was seeing if anyone else has had a problem like this...I can only deduct that maybe she spilled something in that area before or perhaps had something hard/heavy drop on that area and damage that/those particular key(s))
