repeated pause/unpause of media

HP Recommended
Omen 17t
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Just got my laptop the other day. It wouldn't go to sleep the first night and I set screen timers. While I was trying to figure out why I turned on Spotify and it immediately started playing/pausing repeatedly. I updated Windows and drivers, no change. Playing around with keys sometimes gets it to stop for a while, but it starts again consistently if I press the "c" key. Also does it on Twitch and Youtube. It will stop for a while after pressing space bar but starts on its own after a minute or two. It won't go to sleep because something is going on, but I can't figure out what. Someone please help.


I have only put a couple things on the computer, Spotify, Steam, and Chrome
