Even if you slightly pass your finger over the 'G' key, it types 'G' and sometimes spams 'G' like crazy. Is there any way to fix the sensitivity on my 'G' key? I'm on a laptop with a built in keyboard.


As an example, I will write sentences without editing the 'G's out of them.

GThis is how baggd it is, igt happens in almosgt evergy word. If I even rest gmgyg had on the 'G' key, gthis happens: ggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggg. The only times I have ggpressed down on gthe 'G' key is when I am sayinggg is when I am using it propergly in a word oggr sentence. All the togther 'G's come from me jusgt baregly rubbing my finger across theg top ofg it. The 'G' key problem even maes it where some ogther keys wongg't type when pressed, because it reggigsters the 'G' key is being pressed.
 
First try checking it for anything that could have gotten in/under it. Debris, dust, dirt, food, liquid. If that shows nothing then try this...

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 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.
