Hi there

I just had the same problem - keyboard was adding a 'd' after every 'a' and 's': solution was indeed to clean-out the keyboard: main culprit seemed to be hairs caught under the keypads (I suspect a cat may have been sleeping on there (again!!!)). If it's a desktop keyboard, it's generally possible to (unplug it and!) wash it out completely - make sure you air-dry it thoroughly before re-connecting!

This can be caused by a number of things, would be helpfull to know if you are using a laptop or a desktop and if desktop what sort of keyboard. IF this is a laptop, then my first thought is that it seems to me it hits mostly closeby keys, like B and V or S and X. On laptops there is a touch sensitivity setting. Use your help and support option to find out how as they are different in every laptop and you did not specify a model. Also use compressed air to blow out the keyboard as you may have a piece of dust etc under that one key making it activate sooner than the others or making it sort of overlap to the closeby keys making them active as well as what you hit.
If this is not a laptop, then please specify the brand of keyboard, but try the compressed air either way, I suspect this is merely a case of dust.

Pleaset let me know if this helped:)

Keyboard typing automatically


This can be a few things.
1. Stuck keys, some keyboard can get dust, food, hair in them which cause the keys to stick. If you have a vacuum cleaner you can gently vacuum the keyboard to remove some of these obstructions.

2. bad keyboard, if after cleaning the keyboard the problem continues you may have a bad keyboard and it may need replaced.
If it is a desktop you can pick them up pretty cheap at almost any store that sells computer parts. If it is a laptop the keyboard can be replaced as well, but may need to be done by a computer repair shop or other professional.

3. virus, back in the 80s-90s viruses that allowed another person to take control over your computer where very common. Now days these types of viruses still exist but are not as common. You may need to update and run an anti-virus program or have your computer looked at by a computer repair shop. However, I would not do this until the first two solutions have been tried.

Further help can be provided if you let us know if full sentences are being typed, or just random letters.

Typing and keyboard issues


If you're using a laptop, it sounds like the trackpad is too sensitive, so that as you type, when your thumbs touch the pad, the cursor moves.  You can adjust this easily in settings/preferences.
