MOST Annoying PC Issue EVER

So apparently my F1 key is possessed. Normally, this is not a big deal. However, the F1 key controls help for pretty much every program. So it's as if someone is just slamming the F1 key nonstop and my computer is offering help and every possible moment. Ahhhh!

I have a KVM switch, might have something to do with it. Any ideas?

I'm assuming that this happens on all keyboards that you try?

It's either the keyboard or the kvm. Should be easy enough to figure out.

I only have this keyboard available. It seems to stop when I switch the USB ports and allow a new driver to install. Oh well.

Maybe your computer is trying to tell you something...
