    Might be because of dirt piled up inside the keyboard membrane. If its out of warranty/not covered then permanent solution is keyboard replacement. If you love DIY and you are confident to clean the inside of the keyboard membrane then you should try it.

    It it is not hardware issue ( issue with keys )  or dirt ( clean up )  issue on the keyboard, 

    Try windows + x  - On the menu - click device manager or press windows + r - on the run - type devmgmt.msc 
    Go to device manager
    expand keyboard
    right click keyboard driver - click uninstall 
    Restart the computer and check .. 


    You can use the external usb keyboard till the original issue on regular keyboard is getting fixed.
