Why does my computer keep typing 0's

August 4, 2017 at 09:33:40
Specs: Windows 10
computer types continual "0's" automatically, in the search box and e-mail addressing box. It is a rapid succession of "0's" I did find an extra keyboard listed in the device management succession. I followed your instructions to uninstall the top one. This has not helped.

Is this a PC or a laptop? Mostly this is due to a stuck key.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

This is a PC and I have Windows 10. I will check to see if the key is stuck. Thank you.

Try the keyboard on another computer or someone else's keyboard on yours. That will prove whether the keyboard itself is at fault or not.

The key does not seem to be stuck. This is a wireless keyboard, and I cannot remember if there was a disc associated with it or not. If there was I cannot find it. Therefore, I do not know how to try this with another computer. Thank you for your input anyway.

You need to eliminate the keyboard from the equation before you go any further. Borrow a USB plug in keyboard because the keyboard is the most usual culprit. If that works then the problem is most likely the keyboard itself.

Let us know what happens and we can take it further.

OK. I will do this later. On my way to do an errand for now. Will check back in tomorrow or later tonight. Thanks again.

If it's a wireless keyboard, then just turn the power switch off or remove the wireless dongle from the computer. If it stops typing 0's after that, the problem is with the keyboard.

Every wireless keyboard I've ever used doesn't need extra software to work. Usually, any software that comes with it just activates extra features like macros or shortcuts.

You said there were 2 keyboards showing in device manager and you removed one. Try removing both of them, shut down, reboot and let windows find the keyboard.

--Yes but it's a dry heat.
