    My MSI gt60 laptop's keyboard is folded and closed with screen facing the keyboard all the way down. My external monitor tv is showing that the Onscreen Keyboard has both shift keys pressed for 5 seconds, unpresses them 5 seconds and repeats this cycle making it impossible to use the PC. I used virus scans and no water or dust could reach the keyboard since the manufacturer has plastic tape in between keys the way a new laptop has it.

    What SpywareDr said, have you tried it in Safe Mode?
    To do that, click the Start button, the Power button, and hold down the shift key while you click restart. Choose Troubleshoot, Advanced Options, (maybe more advanced options, too), and then Startup. When it reboots and gives you a menu, choose #4 which is plain Safe Mode. If the keyboard still screws up, it's 90+% that you have a hardware problem; but the keyboard is not that bad to replace.
