Surface Pro 4 Typing Problem


New Member

I have this problem where if I type very rapidly on my surface pro 4 type cover, a period will appear suddenly and then a long line of periods will commence as if it is doing it by itself (for example, tw.t.................................). It seems to only happen on keys near "t" and "w" and occurs most frequently when two keys are being pressed at the same time. I tried using the digital keyboard on the surface itself and everything works perfectly there so I'm convinced there's something wrong with the type cover. Things I've tried to fix it:

Simply Restart
Two button shutdown
Cleaned connections with Isopropyl alcohol (Microsoft recommended using 95% but i could only find 70%)

Things I have yet to try:
Resetting the device
Deleting the surface type cover driver

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
