This Microsoft Ergonomic 4000 keyboard is practically new, less than a month old, and today out of nowhere when using Ubuntu the spacebar stops working.
At first I thought it might be the occasional bug, so I did the usual logout/login, then disconnect/connect the keyboard, and finally rebooting. NOTHING, it was still dead.
So I booted to Windows 7, same problem, so I long-press the spacebar hoping it will react, and it did: once I released it the text started to move..........and it never stopped, as if somehow the key was stuck or I was holding it down, but neither was the case, like a very long delay effect.
Everything else in the keyboard works fine, so I really don't know if this could be a software/firmware issue or a hardware one.
Any ideas? has anyone here have the same problems?
PS: this is the wired version.
