Your keyboard is likely defective. If you wish to troubleshoot further, you can try the following :
1) Enter the BIOS, restore the default settings, then Save & Exit.
2) UNinstall the keyboard driver and reboot, allowing Windows to install it's Plug-n-Play keyboard driver.
3) Boot into a Linux "LiveCD" distribution and see if the keyboard issue persists. If so, it's likely a hardware problem, rather than a Windows software issue.
If these tests fail to provide a resolution, you should consider keyboard replacement.
