Windows 10: Keyboard typing on its own even when not plugged in

    Keyboard typing on its own even when not plugged in

    My keyboard has been automatically typing "b" nonstop unless I were to power down and reboot the machine, but it would still continue to repeat the behavior after a few minutes. Unplugging the keyboard and using a different USB doesn't help, or even leaving it unplugged. The computer also often thinks left shift, or left control is being held down, or stops receiving any signal from left alt. Sometimes repeated presses of these keys fixes the issue for a while, other times it does nothing. I first thought it was a hotkey program I downloaded, and the issue did stop after I uninstalled the program yesterday, but upon launching today the issue is back and the program is no longer installed. I ran malwarebytes and it hasn't found anything. Keyboard is a Logitech G910, running on Windows 10. Logitech maintains the driver's through the Logitech Gaming Software, and all other drivers are 100% up to date. I don't have any system restore points but I do still have my Windows install disc/key.
    Have not tried a different keyboard yet due to lack of a second keyboard, but I do assume since the issue happens without the keyboard being plugged in that it wouldn't matter much.
    Any and all help appreciated, I'm not the best when it comes to these kinds of computer issues.

    Seems I wasn't entirely correct in saying that a different USB port doesn't work. Trying a different port on the mobo didn't help, but plugging it into one of the USB ports on the case hasn't been a problem yet.

    Bump, but I've also learned that the issues only start when the usb is both plugged into the motherboard, and when seemingly any game is launched.
