I am having a strange problem once in a while. It seems my PC thinks the ctrl key is being pressed and held down but it isnt. And the only way to fix this problem is to restart.
This problem doesnt happen all the time but it goes get annoying time to time.

Anyone else has this problem?
And anyone knows how to fix it?

Work-around:
tap the control, shift, and alt keys randomly, is usually frees the "stuck" control key. Seen the problem on my G53 as well as my previous computer...and my work laptop (HP).
I am disturbed because I cannot break my system...found out there were others trying to cope! We have a support group on here, if your system will not break, please join!
