Ideapad Y510 - keyboard buffer problem?

2010-07-14, 0:52 AM

Just recently my Y510 appears to be inputting false keystrokes.

 

I use both Windows Vista and Windows 7 OS's and the same thing happens with both.  Depending on the applications that are running, and only for the current active window - these false inputs will have different effects, but always consistent within the app that is in focus, e.g. in MS Outlook, a regular signal will cause the presently selected e-mail from the inbox to be prepared for forwarding (but without a forwarding address, is not sent)  This will happen time and again if left and many new windows are initiated over a period of a couple of hours.  Other apps will have other effects - e.g. MS Word will start an uninitiated word search, etc. etc.

 

It may be that one of the keys has a physical problem - but none that I have noticed in regular use.

Looked up the forwarding command in Outlook, it is CTRL+F:

 

Outlook Shortcuts

 

I'm not sure, but it may be a defective keyboard. As it seems to be random and not triggered, it may be hard to diagnose without sending it off to Lenovo.
