  • as the title says. i removed the keys to see if they were not sticky or dirty, no dust. every keyboard key is acting like if i had ctrl pressed, so i am typing from my phone. however, pressing ctrl alt del and then pressing esc, fixes the issue temporarily. when i press the shift or one of the ctrl keys, it happens again. also my mouse wheel zooms in and out instead of scrolling up and down. please help. thanks

You can try reinstalling your keyboard drivers or checking accessibility options to see if sticky keys is enabled. Or you may be looking at possibly replacing the keyboard, especially since other keys seem to trigger the issue.
now each tie i move the integrated touchpad i get a bsod (windows 10 only)

SO the crtrl keys were not the issue. The touchpad driver got corrupted by windows update and it was acting this way, so i just reinstalled. Thanks for your time guys
