Question Overly sensity 'K' key... - 03-20-2010, 01:48 AM

I have an interesting problem I'm wondering if anyone else is experiencing.
my 'K' key acts strange. overly sensitive / sticky / ???

open notepad, press any key on the keyboard and hold for about a second.
as soon as you let go the letters stop appearing, right?
when I do that by holding down 'K' for a second, it continues to register input about a second after I let go of the key.

also, when I type, i have to be careful because ocassionally it registers the press twice... this is very annoying since I use it in a few passwords...

anyone have similar issue?
any idea's what I can look into? it happens with no other key, very weird.
