Does this computer KB work alright in SAFE mode? If it does then drivers and/or viruses are the problem. If it doesn't work in SAFE mode then it could be drivers and or keyboard. Now try booting into BIOS. At the date prompt you usually can type any keyboard letter. If the keyboard works here, then you definately have driver/virus issues. If not replace the keyboard.

Remove the keyboard screws first, the screws that secure the keyboard have keyboard symbols next to the screws.
Some Compaq/HP have slide catches along the top edge of the keyboard between the number keys and the Function keys. Usually the slide catches are located between the ESC & F1 key, F4 & F5 key, F8 & F9 keys, F12 & delete keys. Slide these catches towards the front edge of the keyboard (ie. towards the space bar) you should be able to lift the keyboard clear. Don't forget to unclip the ribbon cables on the keyboard.
Hello! am Fabian,
problem. every time i press a letter another letter shows up the space bar ...
first, be show to check if any other key is down, if not, dust your keyboard/pad to make sure the keys are free. if you problem remains, its likely your keyboard may be moist. you have to dry it by opening/ exposing it internal circuitry's to a dry air for some hours then close it up and test. if this did not work, it means you will need to replace your keyboard/pad.
when drying do not expose to direct sun light. if you have to replace the keyboard/pad buy an exart from your system manufacturer if you can.
