Hello,

My laptop keeps typing extra symbols when I try to use certain keys and my number pad no longer works. I tried restarting but that didn't work.

' gets me '*
= gets me =/
[ gets me [-
{ gets me {-
0 keeps getting put before other numbers



System Configuration: Windows / Firefox 67.0

You keyboard needs to be cleaned or replaced.
