    Windows 8 randomly flips everything

    Hello everyone,
    I have a huge problem with my windows 8
    The system suddenly flips everything
    Caps lock on = small letters
    Caps lock off = capital letters
    Numbers = symbols
    windows key doesn't work
    when i click on a webpage on google chrome it opens in a new window
    in games (I play league of legends) keyboard keys dont even work
    when i select files (on desktop for example) it automatically auto selects all as if i am clicking shift while choosing

    I have an HP laptop with windows 8 64-bit system
    Please note that this happens randomly at random times and last for a few minutes but sometimes i have to restart my pc to get rid of it.
    thanks in advance

    That sounds like it could be extremely frustrating!

    One of your shift keys is most likely being lightly touched down. More than likely they are getting kind of sticky or old or something. If you know how to clean your keyboard keys I would suggest this for at least the shift keys.

    Try an external keyboard, see if the same thing happens.

    Sounds like something got spilled on the keyboard & touchpad.
