I have a dell laptop, windows 10. I am using an external Dell wired keyboard. When I type 123, for example, it comes out 122222233333. When I type now, it comes out nooooooo, and the w is missing. Have tried to adjust repeat delay and repeat rate with no success. I have also tried multiple keyboards. (Wired/wireless), updated drivers etc Thank you in advance for any suggestions!
