Problem:
On a Samsung Laptop with Windows 10,
Currently whenever I hit my left shift key it gets stuck and keeps inputting the number five until I hit a key to make it stop (no other key stops it, but the key needed to stop it keeps changing, it was the right shift key but now it’s the T key). The number five key does not work.
Fluff:
Woke up and turned on my laptop and as I was trying to log on my computer kept inputting the number five so I ran out of login attempts. A am currently unable to log in to my main computer since I need the number five to do so. Every fix I could find on the web to reset my keyboard needs both shift keys but I don’t think my left shift key is a shift key anymore. So currently I am stuck.

Yes I was able to log on. Computer is also a table so I'm using the tablet keyboard right now. The problem is still active.

Look in Device Manager to determine what keyboard driver is installed.

Then go to Samsung's website to do a fresh download of the current driver or a newer version if available.

Other things to try:

Run the built-in Windows troubleshooters. The troubleshooters may find and fix something.

Also try "sfc /scannow" and "dism".

Thanks for the help but I am just going to get a USB keyboard, I think it is a mechanical problem as no fix on the system seems to help.
