Sounds like some sort of malware or prank program to me...

i tested it out by useing a usb keyboard and the keyboard is working fine? i am not sure if the R and shift button are just faulty?

Is it even possible for the left shift to input a R through some technical malfunction? i think it may be a virus tho because the R can be put back to lowercase if i put on CAPS???

how can i fix this?

i eRased the hdd and REinstalled windows 7 and its still doing it. i have basically come to the conclusion that its the keyboaRd itself and not a bug.

when i tuRN caps on the R goes back to lowercase. when i use it byitself its always capital. when i try to use the left shift to make it lower case it just puts in a capital R also. there aRe some other stRAnge key things happening also but the R is the woRSt.

i logged into mac os 10 and it does it on it also. the only way it couldent be a haRdwaRe pRoblem is if its in the bios? how can i clean the bios and see if this fixes it?

please help!
