My keyboard is acting up. When I press a letter, I get like 3 letters popping up. If I press "r", "gtr" pops up.I'm using the on-screen keyboard right now. I've had this problem before, but I forget how it was fixed. Any help would be appreciated.

Yes. They're all set on automatic. I'll run them though, just to be sure.

Unplug your keyboard and plug it in again a few times, it maybe due to a poor contact in the plug.
Swap the keyoard out to see if the problem is with the keyboard or somewhere else, if the problem goes with the keyboard it's time to buy a new one.

After leaving it alone for a few minutes, I went back to check it, and to my surpise, it was completely fixed. It's like it fixed itself. Weird. Thanks for the help guys.

It could still be a defective keyboard or connector, maybe look into removal and refitting the keyb for your model - usually not a difficult job, you just need to know where they hide the screws/latches.
