    Laptop keyboard randomly lags(?)

    As the title states the keyboard of my laptop randomly stops working and there doesn't seem to be a pattern on when this happens as well. The mouse and everything else works though. I say lag because it stops working, but when you plug in an external keyboard everything that you've been typing when it lagged just suddenly starts inputting rapidly (like when a game lags the screen freezes then when it comes back to normal everything fast forwards to the present). If the keyboard really died I don't think it should behave this way.

    Anyone know on why this happens and a way to fix it? I don't always bring an external keyboard with me so when it happens during that time I have no option but to restart... And yes W10 & all the drivers are updated to the latest version. No viruses/malware either from scans.

    You have to check drive and CPU activity with Performance Monitor.
    If the computer is preparing an update it gets so busily that it doesn't respond to the keyboard. Then it "wake up" and type a bunch of characters.
    Check Windows Update status.
