Laptop keyboard typing wrong characters


Oct 13, 2017
I'm having troubles with my laptop writing the wrong things. For example, when i try and type a comma the following will be typed 'hplok'. And if I press the backspace key it types a hashtag and then opens the help menu much like the F1 button would do. I've tried reinstalling my keyboard drivers but now the computer doesn't even recognise the device. Any external keyboards seem to work fine. I have an MSI 6QE laptop with an integrated steelseries keyboard. Even writing this was a pain.
When you uninstalled the drivers, did you make sure to reboot the laptop before the new drivers were installed? If not then no fixes would have worked.

If you did do that, then it sounds like your keyboard itself is the problem.
