    Is this a laptop or desktop computer? If it's a desktop did you try a different keyboard?

    quick update: this only seems to happen when I hold my laptop at a certain angle; with the backside slightly elevated and pressure on the base...

    The ribbon that connects the keyboard to the internal circuitry (motherboard) is probably a little loose
