Keyboard types wilia when you strike any key

HP Recommended

Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

When every I use a key on the laptop keyboard it types the letter followed by willia.  Does not matter what key I use I get willia.  This does not occur when I use a separate usb keyboard.  Is the laptop keyboard bad?  Does it need to be replaced?

What is a "wilia"?

Word?

Mystery symbol on a non-English keyboard?

 

Ideas...

 

Do you mean to say "tilde"?

How to Type a Tilde Mark

 

Key mapping issue?

Use your favorite Browser and Search for "windows key mapping"

No when you strike any key it gives you the letters "willia" plus the key that you want to type.

OK, no idea.

 

I would have guessed that the keyboard is set to other than your local region. 

 

As a long shot, it is possible your system (computer) is infected with virus or malware.  Yes, I expect this is the first thing you checked.

 

Sorry, this is just not something I can explain.
