Hello, is this an integrated laptop keyboard or a separate keyboard?

Was there anything that happened to the keyboard before this started, or did it just start happening randomly?

It sounds like you could just have some debris underneath the key that is causing it to click both the Q+1, W+2, E+3 at the same time. If possible, try removing the keycaps and cleaning underneath. This could also possibly happen after a liquid spill. Based on your username, it looks likes the problem is occurring with all of the keys on the top row.

If you have access to second keyboard (borrowing one from a friend), you could check that it is purely a hardware issue with your laptop, and nothing more with your PC.

If the problem persists with your current keyboard, the only remaining option would be to purchase a new one.

Regards
