I believe you have a Mac. Did you try resetting the PRAM ?

According to some discussions, the keyboard might be faulty or there might be some dust.
You should try to disconnect / reconnect the keyboard :

If you still have the problem, you can try with a USB keyboard to know if it's hardware related.

It might very likely. At least you should try with an external USB keyboard.
