Locked myself out? CTRL + ALT keys stuck

Hi! About 3 hours ago my Lenovo X230 Tablet arrived in the mail! When I opened it and set it all up, I tried to type, but the CTRL and ALT keys seemed to be "stuck", even though I wasn't pressing anything. Eventually I fixed the problem, but I'm not sure how I did it. About an hour has passed and now the CTL + ALT keys are stuck again and I am unable to log into to laptop, since they disable my ability to type. Does anyone know how I can fix this problem without having to log into my computer?


I have tried seeing if the keys are stuck physically (they aren't), and I have restarted my computer numerous times. I tapped the ALT keys and CTRL keys, and that disabled them for a fraction of a second before getting stuck again.
