Ok, so bear with me, not sure how to explain this.
So after about 10 hours of constant running my computer/keyboard starts to act weird.
Its as if it has caps lock depressed continually, along with I think a ctrl key.
- If I hit caps lock, It works for the letters as it would normally. But if I type
.I always get the
>symbol. No matter if caps lock is on or not.
- It seems to effect mouse functionality to. For instance in gmail, I clicked on a email in my inbox and used the scroll to scroll down the message, but for some reason it closed the email and went back to the inbox.
- Num lock and scroll lock are both off.
It kind of hard to explain the situation because it only happens after a long usage period, and when it does it somewhat renders the computer unusable.
I think it is related to this post Caps Lock is mapped to Shift but it doesn't really make sense to me? How would I all of sudden gain a different keyboard mapping?
EDIT: I forgot that I should've put what solved it directly in the question. What solved it for me was pressing both the left and right shift keys simultaneously.
