    Help! Strange keyboard problem:
    G5, dual, Apple USB keyboard:
    Suddenly the top two rows of keys ---numbers and letters keys---are firing
    simultaneously; ie, press “1” and I get “1q” press “q” and I get “q1” and so on.
    Here is what I’ve tried so far with no luck:
    1) unplug and replug keyboard
    2) switch USB ports
    3) Use keyboard viewer to determine if Mac detects keyboard; keyboard viewer shows two keys pressed when I press only one on those two rows.
    4) Reset the SMU (system management unit).
    5) Tried to zap PRAM but this is not workable do to the keyboard problem: pressing cmd+opt+P+R doesn’t do the “zap” because P and R are on the top row of letter keys.
    Any Ideas? Jack
