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 :)

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

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
