It would help if you give some details about your system - both hardware and software. And when you shift into a tty does your keyboard still misbehave?

Welcome to LQ!

First things first. In order for us to help, we will need system information (both hardware and software). Are you using a laptop? Is your mouse connected via usb? Which distro and version of Linux are you using? Information like this will help us to help you diagnose and fix your issue.
