Please do try these troubleshooting steps that may help in solving the issue.
- Start by uninstalling the keyboard driver from Device Manager.
- Once uninstalled, reboot your laptop and it should reinstall the driver automatically.
- After the reboot test the keyboard again and see if the same problem will persist.
- If it does, connect an external USB keyboard and see if the same problem will persist or not.
- If it works normal with a USB keyboard you may need to do a complete factory reset with your laptop to really identify if it's a hardware or software problem.
- If resetting your laptop back to factory would not solve the problem then it's the keyboard itself that is faulty.

Thanks for your reply..
I already uninstalled the built in keyboard.. And i installed a wireless keyboard..
The wireless keyboard works fine however the built-in keyboard from time to time interfere and type on its own while im using the wireless keyboard!!
And my mouse lags also...
I checked if my built-in keyboard keys is pressed hard.. But its not!!

If i do a factory reset.. Would it erase all data on my hard drive?!
I can't afford this to be hones!

Yes it will erase all data if you Reset to Factory.

Backup all your Data to an external Drive first.


You could also Uninstall the Keyboard Driver { Dont Reboot } and plug the USB Keyboard in and see what happens.

When you do reboot , it will reinstall.


Last resort disconnect the Ribbon Cable within Laptop if that is the actual Problem and the USB works ok, or replace the Keyboard.
