    Hey guys, I'm really annoyed about my keyboard.
    Today I woke up, went on my keyboard, and without looking, I wrote Hel]lo~Ev0ryone! Instead of simply Hello Everyone!
    I can type perfectly without watching, and this terrified me when I looked at myself writing. I typed the exact letters, but they display random accents or symbols.
    So instead of typing a "[", the first time I type will be "ö" and I have to press the same button twice for it to actually give me a "[".
    I noticed this is triggered each time I press CTRL and shift together. It didn't happen before, now it's happening. Now it's really annoying as I can't use photoshop or play a game properly with this.

    Does anyone have a solution?
    Thank you very much.

    In the meanwhile try virtual keyboard :

    I dont really kow if its a hardware or a software problem , [mostly should be hardware ]

    you might need to get it changed or use a wireless or usb keyboard [basic usb shouldnt cost you more than 10-15$ , atleast cheaper than getting it repaired]
