  1. Keyboard typing many characters.


    This is on a Dell Laptop Windows 10.


    So after a recent update, my keyboard has been really screwy. When I wish to type an 'r', 'v', 'e' or 'f' it will type out many characters and is always the same characters for example 'r' will type 'rweq43poiu' 'v' will do somewhat the same only it also uses the delete key and ctrl key.


    The system shows that I have three keyboard layouts on the desktop but in the settings I have it set to only one.

    It does not always do this it will power on fine then after about 30mins of use, it starts typing wrong. I've looked into num lock and scroll lock insert key stuff but it didn't do anything.


    I have also done a factory reset and this did not fix it.


    The onscreen keyboard works fine and so does an external keyboard.


    Thank you

    :)
