I have a Dell Inspiron 15 which was upgraded to windows 10.
The issue i am having is that when it gets to the login, it types the letter P repeatedly in the password without anyone touching the keyboard.
At first i thought it was a keyboard issue, so i removed it. Same problem occurs without any input devices connected, i also disconnected the touch pad and the wireless mouse.
One piece of hint to this issue is that if i press F2 to get to the bios, the problem doesn't occur. It seems to do this only after POST.
Anyone has any idea how i can fix this?
Solved! Go to Solution.
If you press F12 and goto Diagnostics or any of the other boot options, or perhaps even a command prompt and not the BIOS, does the P key issue occur there?
Also, what model Inspiron 15 is this on? There should be a 4 digit model number.
Thanks for updating the post, and I apologize for not seeing your reponse detailing the fix before I posted. Not sure how I missed that... regardless glad to hear!
I have exactly the same issue of 'p' with my Inspiron 15 (upgraded to Windows 10 from 8 ). I have tried both removing the battery for several days and also Diagnostic from F12, but nothing helped. Also, as my touch pad was not working, I have disabled that and inserted an USB mouse. But no help with 'p'. Most importantly I am currently traveling with my laptop and need to perform many things

For model no., the only 4 digit no. I got is 3878.
