    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?
