OK..... If you turn off the touchpad, does the KB problem disappear?

Interesting...

Ok, so it is a problem with the built in keyboard. Unfortunately, I think that it is broken, and has to be replaced....

Go into device manager and check to make sure that the touchpad is enabled. If it is, go to control panel, mouse settings, and check to make sure it is on there.

Restart the computer and press whatever button it says to get into the bios (it should say somewhere).then look through the tabs and you should see an option for touchpad enable or disable.
I hope that helps, thats about the best explanation i can give off the top of my head.
