Thats really odd. Windows Key + L is for login screen (actually Lock). Are you using any custom keyboard and/or software?

I think you pressing the "windows" key down, or its jammed, because L+Win = Logg Screen. Maybe your Keyboard is faulty?

Yeah and Windows Key is one of the few that doesn't report the "Sticky Keys" since holding down and letting go are 2 different actions. It may be stuck and you don't know it.

Does the tab and caps lock or whatever you combo do the Windows Flip? Or any of the other Windows Key combos?

et me take a ook at mine. No probem here.

How did you type your posts? You have both L and l in the posts.

How 'bout resetting the keyboard via Control Panel. Uninstall/reinstall via device manager.

If you still have PS/2 keyboard - do not unplug/replug it while powered on. That can fry the port.

That's almost funny. "My keyboard appears to be broken." How did you fix it? "I got a new keyboard".
