are you sure the keyboard isnt physically damaged and has keys pressed through some kind of liquid spill or hard knock, (hell maybe just wear and tear). Have you tried removing the keyboard from ur laptop, and plugging in an external keyboard?

I've been using an external one but it won't stop the laptop's keyboard to auto press... i've previously removed few keys from the board which were affected, but that dint stop it... Is there something u could tell me about removing the keypad from the laptop physically.? i couldnt find anythin around the keyboard, screws or sth.none!

Sounds like a hardware issue if you've reformatted and it's still happening. Have a search of google or the manufacturers sites for guides on taking the laptop apart.
