Hi NaderHussain,Try updating your set of browsers to include Firefox and see if the key repeats stop. Let us know what the outcome is.
Thank you for this. My Firefox does have this option, though it looks a little different: under the Help section, I was able to refresh in "Troubleshooting Mode" which disabled add-ons, extensions, custom themes, etc.Run FF with all addons disabled. If the repeating stops, then you know that the problem is one of the addons.
Click on Help then Restart with addons disabled.
If you discover that an addon is the problem, open the addons and enable two addons at a time. If that works, allow two more addons until you discover what addon is causing the problem.
Note: I do not run Windows 10. I don't have Chrome installed and I'm using an ESR version of FF so I'm at v 78.14 which is up-to-date.
Just tried this--the on-screen keyboard does NOT have the same issue!!Try using the on-screen keyboard as a test to see if that gives the same problem :- https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/use-the-on-screen-keyboard-osk-to-type-ecbb5e08-5b4e-d8c8-f794-81dbf896267a#:~:text=To open the On-Screen,screen until you close it.
I do not have a spare keyboard, but I will locate one and try this. Thank you!!It's probably a fault with the laptop's keyboard then, to confirm try plugging in an external Usb keyboard and see if that also works properly.
Has the laptop been dropped or had liquid spilt on it ?
Got it. I did this and updated the drivers, which unfortunately dug me into a deeper hole - the repeating is no longer limited to my browser. Keys now repeat no matter where I type, even in Word. I think I may have to accept that this is a keyboard issue with my laptop, and take it in for a repair. Thank you all for your help here; this forum is amazing, and you all are commendable.The only difference I'm aware of is that Network drivers will be loaded in 'Safe Mode with Networking', but not in 'Safe Mode'.
Using your computer's S/N in the first post this is the wireless network driver for it, please download it and then run it, which should re-install the driver(s) and may fix the problem :- https://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles/ptyc03af406v90.exe
