I'm having weird issues with my keyboard.

For instance, yesterday my left shift-b would do nothing but right shift-b would produce a B.

Can't type a ? or / at all.

today right shift seems to work only sporadically.

 

Some unknown circumstances produce a sequence of 100s (guessing) of "/"

 

This improved when i reset win 10, but its getting worse again.

Windows defender doesnt find anything, nor does malware bytes.

 

Im using the on screen keyboard to type this post.

 

This started after it came back from the authorized service center ... :P

Did you try a external keyboard?

Take it back.

If they had to open this laptop and removed the keyboard while servicing, they may not have inserted the keyboard cable all the way in when they re-installed the keyboard. (causing certain keys not to function properly)

If your brave and out of warranty, you can check this cable yourself

(difficulty should be minimal, depending on brand and model number)
