Windows 7: Down Arrow Key Beeps problem

Down Arrow Key Beeps problem

I am using a Lenovo T410i running Windows 7 Enterprise 64 bit. Whenever i am using a web browser (i mainly use Google Chrome but i tried it in Firefox and had the same problem) sometimes i have a problem with the down arrow key. Sometimes when i press it, it beeps 3 times and a window opens on the top left corner of the screen, the same window that will open if u right click up in the top left corner. Its the window for resizing, maximizing and minimizing your window. Along with that, after my next click, my current webpage goes to the previous webpage, basically acting like the backspace key. I have NO IDEA what to do, ive tried looking around Google but cant find anything. This happens randomly, not all the time. The beeping is now also occuring while i use iTunes and MS Words. For those programs, sometimes when i press the down arrow, i hear the 3 beeps and they just minimize.

Heres a sample pic

If it's consistent through applications it could be a problem with the keyboard itself. Try connecting a separate usb keyboard to the laptop and use that for a while to see if it still happens.

It might be the key between the right alt and control keys that is stuck.

If your keyboard has them, install the drivers.

So you tried it and it didn't work or you just don't think that's it so you're not gonna try it?

If you dismiss every idea because you don't think that is the problem, good luck solving it.
