Open up osk.exe and check if the keys are showing as pressed try to press them with the program and see if it stops. (osk.exe in the search box its pre installed)

for me in win 10 this is not the case ie keys dotn show as pressed even if I do.

 

On the subject of IPA its probably not going to hurt anything that i could imagine as long as its dry berfore you use it. Hair dryer could help with that....... heck people clean PC parts in dishwashers all the time (no soap or anything usually) and its fine.

So My keyboard is wigging out. Its constantly pressing space bar and menu button but both buttons are up and not depressed. If its a dirty board can i just rinse it with alcohol and let it dry for a few days or will

that kill it

Weird works for me and even helps me when my windows key sometimes gets locked(aka acts pressed when not).

I have poured an entire bottle of 91 percent alcohol on it, letting it dry over night. How long should I wait to turn it on?

I mean its no longer bugging out and making other keys spazz out. It did leave some residue on the aluminum owo
