Is it a standard keyboard or a wireless one ?


Please try a safeboot by following below steps.

  1. Be sure your Mac is shut down.
  2. Press the power button.
  3. Immediately after you hear the startup tone, hold the Shift key. The Shift key should be held as soon as possible after the startup tone, but not before the tone.
  4. Release the Shift key when you see the gray Apple icon and the progress indicator (looks like a spinning gear).
  5. Wait while safe mode boots up. It will take a lot longer than regular OS X.
  6. Log in (press shift-enter instead of enter after putting in your password to log in without login items.)
  7. You are in safe mode.

Now check the result. If problem is not happening, restart the system and boot normally. Check again.

 

If it not helps, please try the following:

 

Reset PRAM


Reset SMC

 


Let me know the result.

 

Regards

Jins

Yes. It will not work at all unless in capital. I have tried all the resettings you suggested
Expert:  Jins M. N. replied 3 years ago.
Do you have the mac osx installation disk with you ? If so please try Repair Disk and Repair Disk Permission by booting from the disk. Check this tutorial to see how to perform these functions. Please make sure you disconnected every external devices connected to your macbook.

Then let me know the result.

PROBLEM IS STILL NOT FIXED :( ANY MORE SUGGESTIONS?

Expert:  Jins M. N. replied 3 years ago.
First of all, make sure none of the key on the keyboard is not remaining in a pressed state. If some key or keys remaining in a pressed state some wired things will happen due to the key combination.

Then, if you have any external devices connected to the system remove all those devices, except keyboard and mouse. Then check again. By the way, are you using a wireless keyboard ? If so try with a standard keyboard and check the result. If you are using a macbook connect a usb keyboard to the macbook and check with the usb keyboard.

Let me know the result.

I DON'T HAVE A USB KEYBOARD AND THERE IS NOTHING PLUGGED IN AND KEYS ARE NOT STICKING NOR HAS ANYTHING EVER BEEN SPILLED ON MY COMPUTER.

Okay, create a new user account on your mac. Then login as that user and check whether the keyboard issue is there. If it shows this issue on the new account also, most probably it is a hardware issue. But before confirming it, please click here and download clamxav antivirus. Install it on your system and scan the mac for virus infections. Remove every infections it found and then restart the system to check the result. If the problem still persists, you need to contact your nearest apple store, to replace the keyboard.
