Is this by any chance a Laptop keyboard? (I may have missed the first post, if
there was one)

If it is then the keyboard is knackered.

I have a Dell CPx J and its a known hardware fault, in the last three years
I've replaced mine four times.

Simple test is to plug a PS2 or USB keyboard in if the problem is not
repeatable using that keyboard then its 100% your main keyboard has had it :(
