Bit of backstory: My usual ROG keyboard stopped working and I sent it back as per an RMA request and due to the condition of the world at the moment I will get a replacement only after a while.
So I started using my old normal keyboard which functioned fine until one fine day there was a power outage.

Following this Windows started behaving wierdly. The search menu keeps popping up constantly( shortcut: Win+S) unless I am using chrome in which the address bar turns into google search bar and that keeps popping down(shortcut: ctrl+K). I am sure it is a keyboard problem as it stops happening if I unplug it.
EK switchhitter shows there is input but doesn't show any keys being pressed. I have also tried going to the device manager and reinstalling device drivers, and I donot have a touchpad because PC.

Its your keyboard defnetly!!
Use your "On screen Keyboard" to see if the same situation remains....If not its your keyboard itself and that you have to wait to get your other one back.
