Problem is too complex to fit in Subject line.

First, my keyboard had some dead keys, so I replaced it with a new keyboard . The replacement keyboard started to make Enter keystrokes randomly by itself. I restarted the Lenovo Ideapad, and now the internal keyboard doesn't work. Also, Kubuntu doesn't recognize the internal touchpad. I must use an external USB keyboard and mouse.

Note: After the Power On Self Test, an error code, white on black, flashes onto the screen for only one second so I can't save it.

I think the replacement keyboard is not faulty, since all buttons work, but the random keystrokes problem occurs in Windows 10. Those random keystrokes keep me from selecting anything but Windows.

    ↳ AT Translated Set 2 keyboard              id=14   [slave  keyboard (3)]


the error starts with: system bootorxer not found initial

Suddenly the internal keyboard behaved, no random Enter keystrokes; then it returned, and the touchpad doesn't work, so it's back to the external USB keyboard and mouse.

    the enter key presses automatically in linux and in windows? ... if that is true, then you have a hardware problem .... why are you posting here?

    Yes, you have a hardware problem. You can disable events from the internal keyboard and/or touchpad, so the "automatic enter" doesn't get in the way. There was at least one question for that either here or on superuser.
