my right shift key keeps typing Z and my left shift key keeps selecting things, when i activate my caps lock to type i get random stuff like RFSDA- JKL;\YND for example, its really annoying, especially when i try to play certain games, idk how it changed the way it did but i really would like my keyboard to go back to normal.
 
NOTE: If you need to type in a password to even get into Windows to do the following, make sure you attached an external keyboard first, to get past the password. Then disconnect the external keyboard and try the following...

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.
