    You probably need to replace the keyboard - they are replaceable in most if not all all laptops. They are however not cheap and have to be order specifcally for your laptop model.

    You can also buy an external PS/2 or USB keyboard and use that instead - this is the cheaper solution but maybe not the most convenient one.
