Question about HP Compaq Presario R4000 Notebook

R4000 keyboard problem

This started as a sporadic problem, now is a nightmare. All of the sudden, programs start to pop-up. Always the same (media player, system info, compaq support). If you're in a word processing program (even notepad), characters start to be written by themselves, repeatedly. The work-around have been many, since it has gotten worse. The first one was just press all keys on the keyboard. Then tried an external USB keyboard which worked for some time, then the problem started again. I even physically disconnected the laptop's keyboard & mouse to use only the external usb keyboard/mouse combo. Still the problem shows-up. Any help greatly appreciated
