8560P strange keyboard issues (hanging Shift, fn, alt, windows keys.......)

HI Buddy, 

 

My wife had the same issue with her HP Pavilion dm1 with Windows 7 32 bit in it.

 

I found a PERMANENT solution:


Navigate to Control Panel > Ease of Access > Ease of Access Center > Set Up Sticky Keys

(or if you cant find it, press shift 5 times and it will prompt you Sticky Keys form, then click the link "Go to the Ease of Access Center to disable the keyboard shortcut")

In the second to last section, in "Options" you want to uncheck "Lock modifier keys when pressed twice in a row". This is the culprit. Honestly, it's pretty dumb that it's on by default.
