it seems to be progressing. Keyboard is not working correctly. Typing one letter types multiple letters.  m gives me mnhy6j and "a" was pulling up my asusdvd player but now makes q an accent a.  I have uninstalled the drivers,.updated them, did a system restore and ran virus and malware.  There was a Trojan but I deleted it and keyboard still not working properly.

 

Typing on on screen  keyboard

Please try the below solutions:

#1
Open up the Control Panel. This can be done by either pressing win+r and typing "control" (without quotes) or going to My Computer and clicking "Control Panel" in the Other Places area on the left.

#2
Look for "Regional and Language Options." The categories are alphabetized, so finding it shouldn't be hard. Once you find it, double-click on it. A window should come up with the tabs "Regional Options," "Language Options," and "Advanced" at the top.

#3
Look in the "Regional Options" tab, you should find a pull down menu, some "samples," and another pull down menu. Make sure that both menus are set to your region's settings.

#4
Click on the "Customize" button next to the first pull down menu. Sometimes these settings can interfere with your keyboard.

#5
Make sure that, at the bottom of the "Customize" dialogue, your measurement system is set to whatever system your region uses. Once that tab in "Customize" is all set, move over to "Currency," "Time," and "Date," making sure that their settings are correct.

#6
Click "Apply" for both the Customize window and the Regional and Language Settings window.

If Condobloke's suggestions don't work, some information would be useful !  Desktop / laptop / tablet ? Make and model ? Keyboard type ?

 

If this is a detachable keyboard, ie USB or wireless connected, then a simple test is to try a different keyboard.

This is a laptop.

 

There is a key called      Fn    (bottom row...just in from the left hand side)

 

Press it ONCE.

 

Does the laptop type ok now ?

I think liquid got on the keyboard from what I can tell from reading.  If I type m, n, h, j, 6 they all type those same letters as in the first post...they must be on a circuit?  Also all other keys do same thing as groups. (e, space bar, cap lock). ( q`a). (bvgt5) all type each other
