thinkpad keyboard problem - some keys generate multiple keys when pressed

thinkpad keyboard problem - some keys generate multiple keys when pressed

 

For example, "t" generates "tr", "y" generates "yu", "backspace" generates "backspace" plus "IBM access connections", "m" generates "mn" and "n" generates "mn".  Not all keys are wrong. 

 

For what it's worth, the odd behaviour started shortly after a trip to Miami in which I had a meeting at a cafe in which we were undercover but it was pouring cats and dogs - it was like having a meeting in a sauna - so I am wondering if the high humidity could have caused the behaviour.

 

I tried replacing the keyboard but the new keyboard has the same problem.  

 

The machine in question is a Thinkpad T23 running Windows XP Pro

 

Any help would be appreciated as I am now in Los Angeles using a borrowed Mac! :-)
