  1. Strange Login Keyboard Issue

    Not sure where I should post this but I'm really confused.

    Earlier I restarted to update Windows10 and it got stuck at 90% for around 2 hours. I reluctantly restarted my computer during the update. When it booted up everything was fine after it said it was reverting the update. Update center said I was all up to date so proceeded to go about my day. I downloaded a program for my new work from home job (ThinScale Secure Remote Worker). It wanted me to restart so I did and when I tried to log back in, I have to press each key 5-10 times before it registers and show up in the password field. Once I login (One key at a time, slowly) It seems to be working fine but as I typed this it seems to miss a key every few letters.

    Could this be the update that failed or the new software?

    Windows 10 Laptop Keyboard Keys Acting Strange


    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.
