    I have Windows 8.1 and whenever I press the equal key on my Razer Blackwidow keyboard my Chrome tabs close and then My computer thinks my Alt and Shift keys are pressed. If I press each of the Alt and Shift keys once, then the problem is fixed. I used a different keyboard and no problem, also went on a different user with the Blackwidow and also no problem. Any way to fix it?

    Hi xMoJo,
    when you say:
    What do you mean exactly? Did you create a new user account on the pc in question and the keyboard worked fine? If this is the case then perhaps the files associated with the keyboard have become corrupted on your account or possible conflicting software maybe?

    Try uninstalling any associated software and then re-install. See if there any updates first though.
