    What is your OS? Are you using a wireless keyboard? Are you using extra drivers besides the default drivers (for multimedia keys etc)?

    no, you should try booting into safe mode, and use it like that for a while. if it keeps working for an hr. then you have a program this is loading that is remapping the enter button, sometimes that can be a virus or trojan. Or just some sort of prank

    you have to reboot and hit F8 (probably a few times) as it restarts and it will give you a menu ... choose safe mode :)

    Do you have a car? If so securely place your keyboard under one of your tires and move forward, hopefully your car is powerful enough to send the keyboard soaring doing extra damage.

    (Note: This will not solve your problem but it will provide fun and make you feel like less of a slave to your PC)

    Could it possibly be a keyboard controller on the motherboard going bad? I know I know .. longshot :)

    Is it PS/2? if so try using a USB keyboard.

    btw I ddidn't even know what was the problem. I just tried reconnecting, downloading stuff and restarting and hoping it would work and finally one day i realized it did. Also, what keyboard do you have? If you have the same one as me (Microsoft intelliype or w/e) then maybe you should download the drivers and such
