Hello -
I'm having issues with my keyboard.
Various keys are doing "extra" things.
Enter is also page down, pg up is also /
Pressing the up arrow is also left (and vice versa) and down is also right.
There are also other things.

I've done antivirus and malware scans.
I've reinstalled keyboard driver.
In frustration I decided to reinstall windows. This took most of a day, but when it came back to working the keyboard issues had resolved - until today.
As I was typing today the same issue returned. It is quite annoying.
Suggestions? Thoughts?

My guess is it is a driver issue. Yesterday it was using an older version, and today it updated to a problematic version. You can check by using Windows Safe Mode. If I am correct, roll back the keyboard driver via Windows Update.

Also, please add more details about your laptop- HP laptop is very vague. What operating system (Which version of Windows)? What are the specs? What model laptop is it?

It seems to have resolved itself - I did not changed anything - but after a few days it has decided to return to normal. Very strange.
Thanks for your reply.
