Windows 7: M17x issue with constant key press - F24

M17x issue with constant key press - F24

I have only seen one other thread anywhere online about this problem. The issue only presents itself when I try to use flight sim or scroll over a taskbar item. The taskbar icon will show a blinking preview which is extremely agitating, and when I use FS and click on the toolbar on top it will make a noise indicating a key press. I have a tool that shows when a key is being pressed and which; it states that f24 is being used, which I believe is print screen. A restart will solve the problem for awhile, but it will always return.

Specs
M17x
Intel Core 2 quad core Q9000 @ 2.00 GHz
Nvidia GeForce 9400, Nvidia GF gtx 260m
Samsung SSD HD
4 GB ram
Windows 7 64 bit Home Prem.

Any help is GREATLY appreciated

Dell has a special forum section just for Alienware users. Have you tried posting the problem there?

Hi Nia0911,

Welcome to Seven forums.

Kindly connect a external keyboard to the system and disable the internal one and check if it resolves the issue.

You can also check your keyboard at the below website:

Keyboard Tester

Keep us posted with the results so we can advise you further.
