I had a Dell that suffered from that same problem, it was about two years old at the time, the affected keys were H, C, B and S.
It was annoying, hooking up another keyboard was a temporary fix, we ended up replacing the keyboard.

Most Laptops come with a 24 month Warranty if yours has one, why not send it in to be repaired?

This is a guide to disassemble the Laptop in question you only need to follow steps 1-5 and then reverse to reassemble its quite easy infact just dont be rough lol if you find there is damage you can get the part number and reorder a new one.

best of luck.
