Then it's most likely the laptop keyboard is faulty and needs to be replaced

Well can always replace the keys but that in itself is not going to fix the issue. You could try removing the keys and clean under it to see if that helps. My opinion it not going to work but can't hurt to try.

Replacing the keys themselves will not make them work I would at least take keys off and clean. Still don't work the entire keyboard would need to be replaced. They are fairly cheap.
