Hello,
I am having 'problems with the keys on my Acer Aspire laptop. Everytime I type certain keys, other keyboard functions become active:

- = -$ q = zq
t = vt u = bu
p = 'p (right arrow) =] and right arrow
(Space) = j and space; a , followed by a j as well (Delete) = 3 and delete

It's very irritating and, is, the very first, time that, i've, had, to, deal, with, something, like, this...., help, :(

Can you test with an external USB keyboard?

This has all the signs of a broken keyboard.

Tried it and the external keyboard worked just fine. I talked to some friends and they all told me that I have to clean my keyboard. O.o my keyboard looked fine until I took out the keys. It's working fine now, but I still don't get what that has to do with the functioning of the keyboard.
thank you! I had the same problem.... but now its fine!
I have these exact problem with the exact duplicates on my Acer Aspire E15. How did you take out the keys
