every now and then my keyboard will "stick" in software and keep typeing the last letter i typed, so say if i typed "hello" the "o" would stick and act like i was still holding it down. this happens randomly at largly spaced intervels. it seems to happen if i hit more then one key at a time, even though i cant reproduce it. Any idea's?

Yep - either you come out and say you're addicted to the game 20-Questions, or you be a little bit more specific ;-)

my keyboard will randomly cause a character to repeat to infinity until i press a key. This is not hardware. I suspect it to be triggered by hitting multiple keys at the same time.

Check your hardware vendor for a bios update. I had the same problem with my Compaq V5000.

Did you have an "accident" involving your keyboard and coffee, coke or any sugar drink ?

:-\"
