Windows gone rogue

 Share

So all of a sudden my Windows 10 installation decided to become insane. So I decided to install updates and reboot, update failed so it reverted, but the problems remain:

  • Couldn't log in until literally the 10+th time.
  • My keyboard is typing in symbols a la greek letters, copyright, trademark symbol, accented greek letters you name it.
  • My  mouse acts as if its draggin as soon as I click, and the scroll wheel acts as zoom in e.g. Chrome. Clicking just maximizes/unmaximizes.
  • Pressing ESC or Tab acts as if the ALT or the Windows key is pressed.
  • Windows key doesn't do anything

Basically Windows has gone batshit crazy over the course of a minute. Any idea why or what I can do to troubleshoot this? I've ran a scan with MBAM, which didn't find anything. Plugging in another mouse or bashing ESC seemed to snap it out of it shortly, but no longer works. What's going on? Am I compromised (unlikely I guess, but hey, why not)?

Safe mode?

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

Ah yeah good point.

 

It just doesn't make any sense. Just going about my business one minute, boom insanity next minute.

Remember that you have (assuming you didn't disable it), have Save Points. Using System Restore you can bring your system back in time without affecting your personal files.

They should be enabled. It did that on its own already when the update failed. Everything is back to normal now though... really weird.

If anything I'd say it went away as soon as the start menu went from "Shutdown and update" to just "Shutdown" etc. again. Maybe the updated stuff was in a weird half/half state?

Yeah the keyboard is fine. No liquid spills or something on it ever and it's not that old.

It just magically fixed itself after a few reboots. Weird problem.
