    One key press generates endliess repeating


    Hi

    I had an old keyboard where sometimes one key click generated an endless repeating of that click. Something like Hiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii

    I had to click on other keys and backspace until it stopped, until the next time it occurred. Because the keyboard was old, I thought it was a keyboard problem so I bought a new one (logitech), the simplest one.

    It took 2-3 days until the problem happened again. I started wondering if it's not the keyboard problem but something else, maybe with the OS/driver etc... What can I do to check the source of this problem?

    Thanks

    :)

    Zippy! Automatic Button Pressing program.

    Wouldn't it have been more expedient to ditch the GUI and make Zippy! a hot key activated app?
    (Similar to how TPUCapture works)
    For instance ... Zippy! is running in the background. The user presses a key combo (say Alt-Z) to tell Zippy! to repeat the next key/mouse click it sees until the hot key combo is pressed again?
    So Alt+Z and then left mouse click tells Zippy! to repeat the left mouse click until Alt+Z is pressed again.
    That would completely eliminate the need for profiles.

    Just a suggestion for version 2.0 *Wink One key press generates endliess repeating ;)
    As always, good work Ford. Definitely useful with Minecraft. *Toast :toast:

    Booting without press any key

    @dhievm go ahead and list the model number that gives exact specs/info.


    Does it stop right at the Toshiba logo and sit there? Will it sit forever til you press a key, or will it eventually work after so long?

    I understand your concern and will assist you to resolve this issue

    Method 1: Run the
    Hardware and devices troubleshooter.

    • Press Windows key +X, select Control panel.

    • Change the view by option on the top right to Large icons.

    • Click on troubleshooting and click on the view all option on the left panel.

    • Run the Hardware and devices troubleshooter.
    Method 2.Try updating the latest keyboard devices from the manufacturer's website and check if the issue persists.

    Follow the steps to update the Keyboard drivers:

    a. Press Windows key + X key and click Device Manager.

    b. Expand the Keyboard driver.

    c. Right-click on the HID Keyboard Device and click on Update driver software.
