Registering constant '^@' spam

Stream of ‘^@’ characters appears in the tty when I boot, and the spam continues even after I’m logged in. I know this since in Gnome, a popup appears when it registers this character. The periodicity of the spam seems to be erratic

My OS specifications:
OS: Manjaro Linux x86_64
Kernel: 5.8.6-1-MANJARO
CPU: Intel i5-7200U (4) @ 3.100GHz
DE: Gnome
WM: i3wm

I don’t have any other OS on my laptop.

I’ve searched for this issue and seems like this was also an issue in Linux Kernel version 4.13 as seen here: (Link redacted since the the forum disallows links for some reason)

And the apparent solution was to blacklist a module called ‘input_polldev’ by putting the following lines in /etc/modprobe.d/input_polldev.conf

blacklist input_polldev
install input_polldev /bin/false

I have done this and rebooted and the problem still persists and it’s hindering my workflow greatly since my keyboard is behaving erratically because of this.

Is there any other solution to this?

That might be fine, but you could also try:
sudo rmmod peaq_wmi
sudo rmmod input_polldev
