A few minutes ago while watching a movie in VLC player, my video began to pause and unpause periodically (very fast).
I found out that the reason is that my computer acts like if I was holding the space bar. For example when I focused any textbox, it began to be flooded with spaces.
I suspected that the keyboard was broken somehow, but when I disconnected it, the problem persisted. A restart did not work as well.
Any ideas what should be source of the problem? For the past week I also noticed odd behavior with my USB printer – the system would lose connection and then reconnect it.
