  2. Keyboard typing random letters

    I am running Windows 10 build 18945 and random applications (most of them) are getting typed in random letters. I have found many things saying check your input language but i only have one that is English (US).

    And the random letter a key will type is not always the same. I can hold down 'a' for instance and it'll type a series of numbers and letters. So it is not consistent

    Example, copy and pasted holding down 'a'

    One of the only applications that correctly recognizes the input is Firefox

    Pretty sure it isn't a hardware issue, because it is not in all applications.

    This is an integrated keyboard in the Lenovo ThinkPad T430s

    It also seems to be intermittent

    EDIT If i remember right, this started around disabling credential and device guard (I can't use any emulator/virtualization with them on because the virtualization is then exclsuively used by Hyper-V, and i needed to run Intel HAXM)

  3. Keyboard stopped typing letters

    Hi,

    Tap each Ctrl, Alt and Shift key briskly a few times. If that doesn't resolve the issue, restart the computer.

  4. My Dell laptop often types a row of random letter which I haven't typed

    how can I type a letter

    There's many ways to accomplish this, but one easy way to type a letter in Windows 10 by opening the built-in "WordPad" program.

    • Click the Start button
    • Type "wordpad" to find the WordPad program (it will search as you are typing)
    • Open the program and write your letter
    • Click File menu at the top to Save or Print your letter
