Keyboard number "two" typing randomly from top row [Solved/Closed]

Hello,
Recently i left my computer for a few days. I was out at my girlfriends, and as far as i knew everything had been fine prior. I've come back to find that when i press the "two" key on top, the keyboard randomly types a bunch of content from the top row.

;k3261-=56-4`4l`-=

I pressed it 4 times for that example, and each time it brought up the chrome help page. In fact, while trying to type the word "example" i discovered that the "x" key now does the same thing, only from the f1- f12 row.

I've popped the keys off and tried cleaning them, but no luck. Its a letton keyboard, and i'm running windows 10. No amount of googling seems to help.

Hi

Do you get the same issue with another keyboard?

Before i could test this out, it... seemed to be fixed. I had gone to sleep and let the computer go into sleep mode, then this morning, after having trouble logging in (my password has a 2) it stopped giving me this issue.

Thank you for your response, at least. I'm glad its fixed regardless.
