Thinkpad E430 Keyboard typing by itself

The keyboard on my laptop will type any character i press for ever, wherever text can be entered. If i open up a browser, and the first thing i type is w it will keep going "wwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww....." It does this with any key, that is a letter or a number. It does not stop unless i restart it. The only reason i typed this up is because i used a usb keyboard. It works fine unless i press any key on the laptop's keyboard.

The only thing I can think of, is try creating a new user and see if it happens there.  If it still does, make yourself a linux live cd, and see if it does it there.  If it does, then it is for sure the keyboard and warraty that sh*t!  If not it is software based, and you need to clean that computer!
