Just today i came home from a fun dinner and went online to check something, but when I typed h an m appeared after it like so: "hm". Same with esc: "z". Or g... "Gv".

Please help, I don't want to have to buy a new keyboard. Keep in mind this is a laptop.

Try this...

1. Uninstall the keyboard driver.
2. Reboot the computer (without reinstalling the driver).
3. When it restarts, it should reinstall the driver on its own.

If this doesn't work, you may wish to try connecting an external keyboard and see if it works fine. If it does, then it could be the keys themselves that are the issue.

You may also want to try updating the Synaptics Driver if the above doesn't help.
