    Hello. Hardware: MSI Wind U100. I have the following problem: the laptop has been idle for about a month. A strange thing happens the last time you turn it on. The system behaves as if the ctrl key was pressed all the time. I gave the topic to the software site because I disconnected the keyboard and the problem keeps repeating (e.g. when clicking on the desktop icons, they are marked as if the ctrl key was held). I tried to connect an external keyboard (USB) but still the same.

    I am asking for help and best regards.

    In my opinion, it is the shift key rather than ctrl. Check if this key (SHIFT) is not jammed and CTRL and Lock.

    Perhaps a recently installed program caused a conflict or you have caught some unwanted pests. Hijakthis log attached.

    type in run ... osk and test how the virtual keyboard behaves

    Check with a good antivirus e.g. online
    as a last resort, whether restoring the system to the recently created point will do something.

    Maybe it's a mouse problem / try with a different mouse. or reinstalling the driver

    I'm afraid it feels like a CTRL (in notepad, h opens a swap dialog, s writes options, f looks for).
    My friend has msi U130 (netbook on Atom N450) and the problem is the same. Temporary solution is 3 kings and clicking cancel (Win7). From that moment the keys start working - until the next restart ... I turned on the key press signal and at the start something clicks all the time (probably the unfortunate Ctrl), after some time it goes silent, but only alt + ctrl + del unlocks it (probably software ' that).

    hp pavilion 1120ew laptop - the same problem. After being turned on, the computer behaves as if it had ctrl on all the time. This procedure helps me: I click both controls a few times and then run CC Cleaner. I don't need to clean the registry - just starting the program works - sometimes the first time, sometimes I have to do it several times. It also happens that the problem repeats itself during work. Then I run procedures ;) and I can work again.

    Does anyone know what's going on?

    Manolek, unfortunately the hp's have that. These are the signs that it is falling apart. In the near future, you may break the space key and power cable / plug / socket, and soon also the trackpad ...

    Problem solved. The problem turned out to be the keyboard, after replacing it, everything works fine.
    The cause was probably a small amount of water poured on the keyboard and there must be something in the contacts.
    For all those who have this problem, I recommend buying (60-a few zlotys) and replacing (a small screwdriver and 15 minutes of time) the keyboard.
