Asus. Model X540S. Windows 10. The J and N keys are pressing themselves. I barely managed to log into my laptop by using the onscreen keyboard. A sometimes adds a 0, the backspace key puts a bracket instead. It's [watch your language] annoying to be honest. I'm not sure if it's the internal or external. Help please.
 
NOTE: If you need to type in a password to even get into Windows to do the following, make sure you attached an external keyboard first, to get past the password. Then disconnect the external keyboard and try the following...

1. Uninstall the keyboard driver.
2. Reboot the computer (without reinstalling the driver).
3. When it restarts, it should reinstall the driver on its own.

If this doesn't work, you may wish to try connecting/reconnecting an external keyboard and see if it works fine. If it does, then it could be the keys themselves that are the issue.

You may also want to try updating the Synaptics Driver if the above doesn't help.

I have ASUS X541U and it does the same thing to me. It's the worst pc ever, it starts writing letters by itself and it's driving me crazy. I lost control over the keyboard and nothing works with it. I faced the same problem 6 months ago then it was fixed by itself, and now the problem returns.
