Had some issues w/ the laptop this morning. The usb ports didn't work, so I took out the battery for 10 sec then restarted. Since then the keys have been typing random words, and the usb ports work.

 

For example pressing W types R, pressing R types in U.

 

 

I never spilled  anything on the keyboard. I scanned and checked region/language for keyboard as well and nothing changed.

What model laptop? Are there any function keys like numlock activated?


Have you tried turning it off and on again?

Fixed it the same way it broke. Forced shut down, took out battery, held start button for 10 seconds, turned back on. I don't even bleep get it but I'm happy.
