Windows 7: Repeating key after a while away from computer.

19 Dec 2012   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit
Repeating key after a while away from computer.

This is really strange. I have an ASUS X53E laptop with Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit. I use it with an USB Dell keyboard and USB mouse. One day, without warning (I always wanted to use that phrase), the laptop started to send a lowercase letter Q to any command line window open.
I thought it was a problem with the USB mouse and changed it. But the problem continue. Every time I left the laptop alone for a couple of minutes, when I return using the keyboard of mouse it start sending a 'q'.

The problem is occurring even when I have disconnected both USB mouse and keyboard.

Change to a different screensaver and see if the issue goes away.

You can stop most apps from running...
...then add them back a few at a time:
Troubleshoot Application Conflicts by Performing a Clean Startup
...until you find the offending app.

UAC repeating
Some programs that I run fairly often, still ask me for UAC permission every time. Is there a way to make them not ask, just remember that this program is alright?

Installation repeating itself
So I searched and could not find anything on this. Using Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit. During the installation it will get all the way to the first reboot. Once it restarts it just goes back to the choose language screen and starts all over. I can't seem to find a way to get out of this loop. :shock:
