Few keys are not generating desired output

2020-07-23, 9:41 AM

Few details about my problem:


Few keys like S,P,K,B, Space bar are giving different outputs. Important to note that the issue is happening back and forth, It's not permanent


If I press 

S - it works as alt

k- scroll lock on off

B - scroll lock +sometime ctrl key

Space bar - doesn't work at all


Everything works when I use an external keyboard. I have literally no clue as to how and in what pattern this happening.


Pls help as this is very very frustrating and have tried possibly all the ways given online and few forums.

It is hard to diagnose without seeing it, but it sounds like bad contact under the keyboard matrix.  If that is the issue, keyboard replacement is the only option.  You don't mention the computer model.  Are you under warranty?  Is it possible there was liquid spilled onto the keyboard?  Most of the times I have seen this behavior, liquid was involved.
