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.
