PC holds down key continuously!

Okay, I'm at a loss here. Here it goes.

For the past two days, my PC for some unknown reason decides to sometimes hold down the 3 key continuously and it keeps going even when I disconnect my Razer Huntsman Elite keyboard. It comes and goes, but when it comes, it never goes away and I would need to shut down the PC in order to type again. I'm pretty sure it's my system and not my keyboard because the on-screen keyboard shows nothing is pretty pressed and it's basically a brand new keyboard with no dirt whatsoever. Also, sticky keys is disabled.

I have tried everything in the book so far to try and fix it. Ran the keyboard troubleshooter, nothing. Disconnected the keyboard, nothing. Uninstalled the HID keyboard devices, nothing. Ran CCleaner, nothing. I even did a clean install of Windows 10, and nothing! I really don't know what else to do. Please help!

I ran TweakBits Driver Updater, too, to update any driver I may need to update.

Hi is your windows 10 fully updated?

Yes, it was. I've found the cause, if anyone is interested. It was my mouse. I have the Razer Trinity, so I can take off the sidepanels. Chances are it wasn't properly connected.
