    my dad works for nintendo.
    my keyboard was pressing random keys, i thought it just needed to clean it

    so i open it cleaned and it looked it was working fine

    leaved pc alone for some time and it was doing the same thing.
    but then it stops pressing random keys and some of them don't work "f5, 7,8"
    i had open the keyboard and that keys dont work when i press the plastic directly
    the same thing happens on linux and i checked the connection to pc

    ideas how to repair or find the problem?

    Sounds like either something got stuck under the keys while you were cleaning them, or you're the keyboard itself is just plain going bad. Take it apart again, get some canned air, blow through every little crack. If they still don't work, then the keyboard is dying and you might as well just buy another.

    If it's not a gaming keyboard, you can get a regular keyboard for a cheap price. But for how long have you used your keyboard?

    thank you for the help, with the keyboard open, and when he started to do the crazzy random presses, i removed the plastic sheets, and it still did the random key presses
    i guess the problem is on the board or wireless thing.. so, nothing i can do

    i will buy a new one, any recomendations?890

    Budget? Gaming keyboard or regular?
