  1. I can't hold these 3 keys.


    I've noticed that I can't hold my left shift key, left caps lock key and tab key but instead it would act like an auto clicker on it for some reason. It's really hard to type uppercase character that use right hand to press now. How do i fix this problem?

    :)
