The first thing and easiest thing to do is try another keyboard.

It might be strange but if things work as they should with the replacement keyboard its the keyboard.

Well I have never tried fixing a keyboard. When their broke I get rid of them. The odds of taking them apart and repairing them is slim to none. Sometimes you just have to put them to rest thanking them for the great service they provided you.
