Is it possible for a faulty PSU to fry a keyboard? A couple of weeks ago my psu started making noises and experience taught me that its likely time for a fan cleaning or replacement. As everything was still working fine and the noise was only during startup i postponed addressing the problem. Then my keyboard started acting weird. Typing double letters & opening random apps. I tested another keyboard but the problem persisted, even on another pc. I cleaned the psu fan and bought a new keyboard and everything worked well for a couple of hours then the 3rd keyboard started acting up. By now i have updated win 10, all drivers, triple checked for viruses and malware. I replaced the keyboard again but the problem came back after a couple of hours as well as the psu fan noise. Any help would be greatly appreciated

Welcome to PCHF dFiance505,

It is entirely possible and the damage could be being done via the USB port/s.

Please provide information about your computer, is it a custom build or brand name such as Dell or HP, if a brand name, provide the model name or series number (not serial) if a custom build post the brand and model name or number for the CPU, MB, the RAM (including the amount) add on video card if one is used and the PSU (power supply unit) providing these details will enable folk to better assist you.
