One key keeps typing continuously

HP Recommended
HP Omen
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi there. I'm using HP Omen laptop. For a few months now one key has been continuously typing nonstop all the time and it keeps hindering all activities i do. I even removed the key from the laptop but the character keeps on typing. I'm not sure how to fix it. Maybe it's a hardware malfunction. I don't remember spilling anything on the keyboard either. I tried uninstalling the keyboard drive but it is not getting uninstalled. I go to 'Device manager' and select the keyboard and click uninstall. It asks for a restart. But then when i restart my system the keyboard is still functioning and the key is still typing non stop. Even while typing this I'm hitting backspace so many times to clear all the `````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````.


Don't know what else to do.

Hello, i have dealt with this with my omen ,however probably not on your scale. Your omen should have a hardware testing environment UEFI. its something that you boot into as if it was the bios but a little differently. From there you can see if its a hardware issue or a OS bug, mine turned out to be a mix of both but i eventually mitigated it miraculously. Reply back with the results.
