    Keyboard is typing the wrong letters

    My Logitec K350 keyboard works fine when I plug it into my laptop. When I plug it into my desktop and search on Google, try to shop on Amazon, etc. it produces the wrong letter when I press on a few of them.

    s key types an i

    q key types a s

    e key types a m

    Same letters, same results. I am typing just fine on the Microsoft help page, but can't when I am on the internet. What is going on?
