Arrow Keys Not Working

My four arrow and delete keys have stopped working on my Lenovo V570 laptop (Win 7). The arrow keys still work if I press Fn + arrow, but not alone. I have searched but came up with nothing. Any ideas?

1. Have you tried them in multiple applications? (some game updates will remap arrow keys to WASD within the game)
2. Lennovo driver site and re-install the latest keyboard and hotkey drivers

They work using the Fn + arrow key, but not alone. I uninstalled the keyboard and reinstalled but nothing different. I was thinking that maybe a software function change made them not work. I don't know what that would be. They haven't been used in a game.

Well Gang, I fixed it. I found the fix after many searches on Google. Take the battery out, shake laptop well and insert battery. Bingo, it works.

Whenever I use the arrow, backspace, or delete keys, it's as if the key was pressed twice. i.e. if backspace is pressed, two characters are deleted, if the left arrow key is pressed, the cursor moves two spaces, etc how do I fix?
