Hi cat222, welcome to TSF

I have been looking to see if other people have been having this issue but can't find anything similar.
The only things I can think of are:

1] There may be a lot of dirt that has built up over time causing the keys to error. Crumbs that have fallen on to the keyboard and are interfering with the keys.

2] Have you spilt anything over the keyboard recently?

3] What is the model of your laptop? Reinstalling the drivers for the keyboard may help?

4] It may be that you have accidentally pressed the FN key in combination with another key, which might have remapped the keyboard. (that last one is a long shot, but just wanted to mention it)

see if a usb keyboard does the same thing when hooked up. as TheGift73 stated try uninstalling the keyboard in device manager and restart it will install driver upon restart

Hello A week ago I spilled some water inside my laptop keyboard. At the beginning I couldn't type at all, but now the only problem I have is whenever I click the "n" or "b" keys the caps lock turns on (but the letters appear). Clicking on the actual caps lock key doesn't work. I think the...
