    4 Numpad Key is Repeating After April Update


    I recently updated to the 1803 April update on my Alienware 17 R4. I'm having a problem where (only when windows explorer is being controlled aka when it's not hidden) the 4/left key on my numberpad is repeating itself. It doesn't repeat itself on browsers, only on windows explorer. This didn't happen before the update. I've used several programs to try and disable the key itself but none of them worked. It's not a physical issue either as I've cleaned the button in hopes that it would stop. Numlock doesn't do anything either. It's the reason I know it's that specific key because when it's on 4 repeats. Otherwise it just constantly goes left making it impossible to type into the search bar. Please help.

    :)

    Since update numpad doesn't work properly anymore

    Good evening,

    On a HP Pavilion dv7 laptop, since a Windows10 update two days ago (version 1511, OS 10586.104), my numpad has gone nuts.

    For example :

    • key 2 writes 72, locks caps and opens a Bing search for "help with windows 10"
    • key 3 writes *3wc
    • key / writes /4 and triggers a menu for alternative screens
    • etc...
    Here is what I already attempted :

    • uninstall and reinstall keyboard
    • add an alternative language keyboard
    • check "ease of access" options
    • try the numpad in the BIOS : it works fine
    • try the numpad in safe mode, now read this : it worked fine ! I restarted in normal mode and the keyboard worked fine also for a minute or so. Then it went crazy again. Now it doesn't work in safe mode anymore.
    Any suggestion welcome,

    Thank you for your help
