keyboard generating random letters

Hi,
my keyboard produces certain combination of letters when i push down the key.

for example

key c = 1rc
spacebar = space then gr ( gr)
tab = lots of spaces then 4f
a = will produce a then the ctrl+f find bar?
down arrow = backwards slash
key x = mdx
key e = returns e then turns on capslock. (constant pushing e shows eEeEeE)

some letters will produce fine. I don't know whats up with the keyboard.

its a keyboard on a msi gx400 laptop

Have you tried using this on other Systems? Try that first to see if its the keyboard itself or an issue with the drivers/software/os.

I had a Razer Lycosa that would do a similiar thing when playing BF3 the keys would "stick" and i would have to quit the game and relaunch, ended up being a problem with the drivers as my replacement did the same, once i swapped for a Razer Blackwidow ultimate havent had any issues

Apologies didnt see the laptop bit at the bottom thought it was strange that MSI made keyboards

How did the driver update go?

Another thing to check if drivers didnt sort your issue would be to remove the keypad and clean the dust etc. also make sure the ribbon connector is secured firmly into the slot.
