My up arrow key sticks. It's not a problem with the key physically sticking. When I press the up arrow once, it moves the cursor up several spaces. If I press shift-up arrow and hold down shift but release the arrow key, the cursor keeps moving up until it hits the top of the page if I hold the shift key.
I've tried unsinstalling the driver and Setpoint, but the problem is still there.

If you mean the key is physically sticking, as in pressing down but not releasing,it is possible that the plastic spring or rubber stop under the key has broken.
You can remove the key cover and check if the plastic spring that the key attaches to is moveable and that the small rubber stop underneath is present. If the spring is broken, a replacement key can be got from ebay for a small cost. Check also that there is no dirt or sticky patches under the key, these should be removed using meths or a similar solvent.
If the key is not physically damaged, or there is no dirt etc underneath, there may be a problem with one of the traces on the ribbon cable to the motherboard, this will necessitate a new keyboard
Most likely, a problem has occured in the physical connection between the key and the "motherboard", since you have pointed out that there is no "sticking" of the key itself. Otherwise, if it were a software/driver problem, you would also have problems with the rest of the keyboard. "Aftermarket" keyboards are relatively inexpensive these days, so my advice would be to purchase a new. Keyboards are "plug-and-play", so after connecting the new one, you will not have to go through anymore steps...you're done!
You may need to re-connect it. Have a look for a little button on the bottom of the mouse... and a little button on the reciever stick that pkugs into the computer, press them one after the other and see what you get? Hope this 'Helped?
my keyboard is way too sensiticve. when ltyping if i don't hit my key dead center and just a small lportion of my finger touches a key arouind it, that key is also typed. I am a good typist, but when not looking at keyboard and going too fast I don't always hit jmy key dead cwenter. i would like a keyboard like an old typewriter. do they sell less sensitive keyboards ???
Logitech keyboards are excellent both in quality and longevity. Make sure some sugary drink has not been spilled on the keyboard. This will make the keys stick and repeat. I have had good luck with Dawn and warm soapy water. Just make sure the keyboard is completely dry before putting back into service. 1-2 weeks drying time. (IF you dunk and submerge. Only the most severe) Never EVER dunk a laptop in water to clean the keyboard. I know I know... but someone will try it. :)
Check to make sure the windows sticky keys are turned off. Sounds like dirt or a soft drink is causing this repeating pattern you described.
