Help! The ALT key on my keyboard has stopped working. I've tried 3 different keyboards and the alt key doesn't work on any of them. I've made sure Accessibility options are turned off. I've unloaded Intellitype pro. I'm at my wits end. THanks!

As a follow-up, I switched to a non-USB keyboard and the ALT key started working but the SHIFT key stopped working. Any advice is greatly appreciated!

Are your sticky keys turned on?
Hit Shift 5 times. You will have following options:
OK - Cancel - Settings.
Click Cancel ans see if this helps.

Thanks, it turns out it was something with sticky keys, which I turned off and now things are working again.
