Try plugging in an external USB keyboard, and see if it works.
To clean the micro momentary switches on the keyboard itself, you'll need non residual/conductive contact cleaner that is not petroleum based and disconnect it before spraying it directly into and around the little button on each switch. I wouldn't think it would be a dirty/stuck switch though as you explained it only malfunctions after stroking a key. Another thing you could try is a clean install of your preferred OS.
I'll think some more on this, but the above came to mind first.

The keyboard is set up wrongly or the laptop isn't one set up for your country.
If you get " when typing @ try typing SHIFT and 2 for the @ symbol.
You can change keyboard settings in Control Panel.
