This is a common issue.
This is due to ' Dirt Accumulated in Keyboard '.
There are different options :-
1. Simple one - Take a vacuum and clean the keyboard. This is not a fool proof method.
2. Best method - Open your keyboard and take a soft cotton and clean the keys individually. This is the most effective way.
The below link also helps you to take out and again fit the keys.
Note - This might void the warranty. If under warranty, take it to the nearest showroom to get it cleaned.
Thanks for using "Fixya".
