Ok, this is going to be a really stupid, noob-ish question. But this is driving me insane.

Recently (in the last month or so) my keyboard decided to start acting weird. The down arrow key now functions as a mute key for the volume. And I also cannot alt-tab between programs. I have looked at the keyboard properties, and checked to see if some weird shortcut functions were set. Nothing. I scanned for viruses, and downloaded/installed the latest driver. Nothing. Searched the internet for about 3 hours last night looking to see if anyone else has had this problem and/or how to fix it. Nothing.

Anyone have any ideas? Why would the down arrow on my keyboard start functioning as a mute key? And why can't I alt-tab between running programs anymore? Anyone have any idea how to solve this?

Grab the keyboard on one end with both hands.
Raise the keyboard up above your head.
Smash the keyboard on your desk and go to the store and buy yourself a decent keyboard.

You didn't list the brand of your keyboard but if it's a OEM keyboard, good chance it's a piece of shit.

Yeah, forgot to post the type of keyboard. It's one of those Dell multifunction pieces of OEM crap that I had laying around when my last keyboard bit the bullet. The only saving grace on this thing is that it's USB and not PS/2. I suppose I'll just go to newegg and buy a new keyboard.

Ugh, ignore these idiots Boom Stick, take my advice and get another keyboard. I'd say your other one is most probably broken, so yep, definitely get another one.
