 Why is my Laptop keyboard typing by itself? 

Heavy dust and dirt built up inside your keyboard are one,  liquid (spill-Over) that can damage your laptop keyboard, and make it ( Gibberish), or make it type by itself. 

  Another reason might be the fact that your laptop keyboard is cheaply made or mal-structured.  This defective issue can happen again and again on a laptop with (defective components).

Sometimes you see this sign when your laptop keyboard is generating Wrong Words or  Gibberish in the middle,  typing and continuing to generate (different words that are not what you type on it) to the point that you can hardly use it anymore, this is a common component defective issue on laptops keyboard.

Are you using a wireless keyboard on your laptop? if so, then there could be a conflict with someone else using the same type of wireless keyboard.

This is more evident when you see another user attempting to backspace out your typing and replace it with his own while you’re attempting to do the exact same thing.

How to Fix Laptop Keyboard typing by itself?

All these problems here have some helpful solutions to fix it and get your laptop back working properly.

These are great tips I use to fix my laptops, you can do exactly the same.

 Solution 1.1)  Dust of and  keep  your  keyboard  Clean regularly

This isn’t just the keyboard alone but you also want to keep the entire system clean including the charger and ports on the laptop, this means you are actively using your laptop.

Don’t use a laptop where there is dust and dirt that can attack the component,  and you want to make sure to regularly dust it,   use an air compressor to blow air where you cant reach manually.  Make sure that there is nothing like dust or dirt covering the keyboard for better performance.

Solution 2.2)  Avoid liquid Split-Over Don’t Eat or drink on it too.

Liquid split over your laptop keyboard can cause serious damage not only to the keyboard but also to entirely. So to avoid this, be careful to do away from the laptop when eating or drinking because liquid spills over the laptop system are not designed to be repaired, they’re meant to be replaced.

Solution 3.3) Initialize your wireless keyboard with the USB receiver.

If you are using a wireless keyboard you will want to properly set it with the USB receiver to avoid any conflict with others, it enables the USB receiver to reject any information from another keyboard.  You want to make sure that the keyboard and the USB receiver are initialized so that they set up an encrypted communication system between them.

 When your wireless keyboard is having an issue or conflict with someone else using the same type of wireless keyboard it’s because of the same encryption, that is the usual serial number on them.

 How do you initialize your wireless keyboard?

To initialize your laptop wireless keyboard you want to go to the original installation instructions and perform the settings to re-initialize so that the keyboard and receiver create a new encryption key. Most modern wireless keyboards like Logitech have this.

 Solution 4.4)   Check  for a Prank USB Device

A prank USB device can cause your laptop keyboard to malfunction and also to self-typing like human-generated, real words and sentences, or the rows of the keyboard in sequences.

When a  standard thumb drive is hacked the OS sees it as a keyboard and or mouse and it will then generate random keystrokes or mouse and move around.

Turn off your laptop and remove all USB devices including the wireless keyboard and see if this fix the problem,  if it doesn’t then let try this one.

Solution  5.5)  BIOS Setup And disable the Internal keyboard.

Is this problem still continuing?   then you want t to avoid  this  going on,   you can disable  the  internal  keyboard temporarily by entering BIO Setup

  • To  do this,  plug in a wired keyboard  to  your laptop
  • Enter your BIOS setup and disable the internal keyboard.
  •  then this should  stop the   typing going on
  •  You can then have the internal keyboard replaced

 Solution 6.6)  Scan your Laptop with anti-virus and  Run anti-malware

These should be done regularly but some won’t take this into consideration. If your laptop is without an internal keyboard, no extra USB device connected,  and zero net connection, you still have the problem, it’s time to scan with antivirus and run anti-malware.

When you surf online without any protection, your laptop is always at risk,  it can be e infected, or even worst,  someone else might gain access to your machine.  Use an effective one capable of protecting your overall system.
