    I did not have an external keyboard to use. However, I recalled something from several years ago that someone told me in connection with laptops, to wit: Sometimes the battery can cause a problem. Therefore, I disconnect the a/c power source (I use this 99.99+ % of the time) and allowed the machine to remain on for a while so that the batter would 'drain.' Subsequently, the problem was corrected ! Really ! I have no idea why this did work but it did.

    good to hear :) i had that happen with a laptop a couple years ago where the battery needed to "drain" but it didn't effect the keyboard like yours did. glad you found a solution.

There may be something wrong with the internal keyboard of your computer, such as sticking keys. try attaching an external keyboard, as you would use with a desktop, if this does not help, then you should call technical support and alert them to this as it may be a system failure or malfunction, though that is unlikely.
