dash key keeps being spammed
No other keys work
If I press space or any letter key it puts in a tab
Keyboard will work fine for the first 5-10 mins of boot up
Uninstalled keyboard drivers rebooted and it worked fine for about an hour now it’s back to spamming the dash key. No viruses or malware detected from scans
Works fine in my girlfriends laptop.

anyone know what could be the cause of this?

Saying the keyboard isn't broken isn't always the case. It may not appear to be broken but I had another keyboard that I presume had a short circuit that made it spam 0 constantly if you hit it by accident or anything. Sounds to me like you have the same issue...

Either your keyboard is broken or you have a hardware defect with your computer, Known as `ghost typing`, If it's a hardware issue, return the computer and get a new one.

Plug in a new keyboard and try that before assuming it is a hardware issue though.
