  1. Keyboard acting strange


    Recently my keyboard has been acting strange. When I press the W key, both 2 and W type at the same time. Same with the E key, except it types a 3, and so on. Then, when I try to type a number, for example 2, the keyboard types out a 2 and then a W. This is not an issue with num lock as I have it turned off. For clarity - 2w3e4r5t6y7u8i9o0p on both the row of numbers and the first row of letters on the keyboard

    :)

  2. Windows 10 Laptop Keyboard Keys Acting Strange

    Hi,

    I realize that you are facing issues with the keyboard on your PC. I will try to help you with this issue.

    Suggest you to plug in an external keyboard to the laptop to check if that helps.

    Further you may also use the onscreen keyboard to check if that helps.

    Follow these steps to launch the On-screen keyboard:


    • Press Windows key + R to get the run window.

    • Type “osk” and hit enter to launch the On-screen keyboard and check if this helps.

    Keep us informed to help you further.

    Thank you.

    Keyboard Acting Strange: Keys Acting Stuck

    Keyboard acting strange since Windows 10 update

    Exactly this problem that seems to happen randomly. I've asked this question before and when I got a reply, I tried all the solutions it told me to but when I tried to tell them they didn't work I never got a response again.

    Why is it that nobody here knows how to fix this problem? Solutions I have tried are uninstalling my keyboard drivers, upgrading them, downgrading them, disabling sticky keys and making sure the keyboard
    isn't on any power saving plan.

    The link above is also not the only time I've seen someone ask it here, so if you see someone ask this, keep in mind none of the above solutions work.
