Keyboard Backwards

HP Recommended

Hey all!

I have had this laptop for just shy of a year and it’s great except for one thing! The keyboard. This happens whenever I am writing papers and is very annoying. I always have to restart the computer when the problem happens which is not fun if you are in the middle of school work.

My caps lock will suddenly turn on, even though the light isn’t on. If I push the caps lock button, the light comes on, but then I’m in lowercase again. All my keys become backwards (so instead of a period, it’s <.

Then if I go to click to a certain sentence, it will highlight everything below it as if I am holding down my trackpad. It drives me crazy and I don’t know what to do! Does anyone else have this problem? Or know what to do. Hoping the solution isn’t to just keep restarting my computer whenever it’s happening because that gets old pretty fast 😛
