Shift click not working on my HP pavilion notebook


May 28, 2017
So, I'm using a HP pavilion notebook. And lately the 2 shift buttons haven't been working for me. I even checked for it in and it didn't detect any input from them. Sticky keys aren't activated and I'm using the administrator account.

But one strange thing I've noticed, is whenever I hold both shifts at once then I click on z it types zq. If I hold z, it types zqqqqqq.... This doesn't happen when I hold only one shift.

This happens with q as well, it types zq and when I hold it with both shifts it types zqqqqq...

Apparently it also happens with all the keys of qwertyuiop where they are typed along with the respective keys of zxcvbnm,./

As for the middle keys of asdfghjkl;' nothing happens when I hold both shifts and then press them.

It works on the on-screen keyboard.

The really weird thing is, the shift key wasn't working yesterday.
I'm 100% sure that nothing hardware-based happened to it.

Today, the shift key is working.

Then, during today, it stopped working sometimes. I held it for some time then it worked again.
Also when I hold both shifts it still does the zqzqzqz thingie

Oh yeah, I'm using Win10
