G50-45 Caps and Number Lock comes on for no reason Windows 8

Hello,

 

A few days ago, while using my computer, the Caps and Number Lock button came on and wouldn't go off. This happens while typing and suddenly it types ASDFJKL; and won't let me type anymore. I can still switch between screens but can't type anything and can't turn the Caps lock and Number lock buttons off. I end up having to restart my computer. This has happened maybe 5 times in the last few days.

 

Please help if you can! Thanks!

Could be a short circut on ribbon cable that connects the Keyboard to the main motherboard and the case.   The hardware maintenance manual for our laptop is linked below, and has instructions on how to remove your keyboard if you feel savy enough to remove it yourself.    

 

You might also check to make sure Stickey Keys is not turned on... I have seen it cause strange things before, so it is worth a check.   Stickey Keys can be turned off and on from the Windows Control Panel named Ease of Access Center, under the section Make the Keyboard Easier to use, or by following the instructions in the video below.
