Make sure your BIOS and all of your drivers are up to date. That can often fix things. 


If all of the drivers are up to date, locate the keyboard in Device Manager and uninstall it. Reboot. Windows will catch it and reinstall it. 


If it still does it, it could be the keyboard. Spill anything in it? Dirt? Dust?  At that point, you can try to reseat the ribbon cable or replace the keyboard

Hi CmOB_5,


Welcome to the Community Forums.


Try using an external usb keyboard and see if it does the same thing.

You can also isolate keyboard hardware issue by booting on a live rescue image similar to this and see if the keys behave the same.


If it does have the same problem on a another boot image but is ok with an external USB keyboard then it is probable that the keyboard/ connection issue is at fault.


Hope this helps answer your query.

Update us how things go.
