  1. Hi,

    I have an hp laptop and my keyboard is being acting very weird. When pressing almost all the keys, i get a group of letters. For example, when pressing "v" i get "bgv". some of them stopped responding at all. I used to get "1qa" when pressing "q", but now it doesnt even respong. Also, the on-screen keyboard shows that both shifts are pressed.

    Can anyone help me with this?

    Try an external (USB) keyboard
    If that works without issue, then it sounds as though your laptop keyboard is faulty (dust or moisture)
    You could try blowing it out with high compressed air (compressed air cans can be purchased from many electronic or computer tech stores)
    But you may need to replace the faulty keyboard
