Hi,

The best I can suggest is to blow (yes blow, quite hard) between the keys as it sounds like some dust/fragments have got caught under the keys.

I would still do it just to make sure that debris hasn't got trapped between 2 keys causing them to press @ the same time.

Either the keyboard is dirty or it has failed. Can you take it apart and gently clean it?

You may well lose warranty, use the blow tactic (I can't believe i'm saying that) and if you still have issues then a replacement wont cost you anything
