I was thinking a fresh install of Windows may be what needs to happen, but backing up and then reinstalling all the programs used can be a time consuming deal. But, barring hardware issues, the system would be good as new operations wise. If Tony's saying that's the way to go NDX, he's probably right. It's not difficult, but like I said, time consuming.
I'm gonna get it looked at on Thursday. In the mean time I'll try to save some music, my art and a few other things. After that, run a full scan or 3, and if need be, ask them to reinstall windows 10. See if that works.
Sometimes drivers for things get wonky. Especially after you've been having other issues. Reinstalling drivers can fix a lot of issues easily. I can walk you through it if you want, it's really simple and easy. Might do the trick.

Agreed if you can get your hands on an USB keyboard you can test this driver issue before updateing or uninstalling drivers.. if the usb keyboard works with no issues then it should mean the laptop keyboard could have driver issues
In Windows 7 you can right click My Computer and go to properties. There you can scroll to Device Manager, and then keyboard and click update driver and it will automatically find and install a new driver if there is one. Don't know how it works on anything after 7.
Same issues? Me personally, I'd re-install Windows just to be completely sure it wasn't a software or virus issue.
But, I have everything digital that I own on an external drive I can just unplug and plug back in when I'm done. Don't know how you're setup is, and maybe there's a better way, but for me re-installing would be the simplest route and would give me peace of mind. Just my opinion though.
