    Something awwwkwwward is going on wwwith my 2-years-old powwwerbook G4 keyboard. when pressing the W key it is as if I hit it three times resulting in WWW. The same problem is with the 2 key. I tried rebooting, resetting PMU and PRAM and still the problem persists. I didn't have this problem yesterday :confused::eek:

    Maybe there is some grime under the keys that are causing them to stick?

    Underneath the physical keyboard or under one of the keys?

    Nothing is underneath the keys, I removed them they seem okay.

    It looks like the S key is starting to act funny too :confused:.

    Well... the 2, W, and S keys are all next to each other. Did you accidentally spill something on your keyboard and not notice?

    I spilled water on one of my keyboards, and it started acting funny like that. Some keys stopped working, others acted like they were pressed even when I didn't touch them. I ended up having to get a new one.
