Run Factory Recovery but be aware that it will delete any files that you've saved on drive 'C'.

Perhaps before going down the drastic factory reset/restore path... which as "phil22" warns "will" erase all your personal files in the process, perhaps try a few other things first...

Try another keyboard - i.e.a usb one?

Try booting into safe-mode...?

Take steps to save your personal files - BEFORE any factory reset/restore routine? This can be done in at least two ways...

Possibly run a virus clean out routine (booting from typically a Kaspersky Rescue disk).

Tyr running one of at least two decent and well regarded "windows repair disks"; one being here -

tweaking.com

This latter does require a boot into a desktop - safe or normal mode.

Have you any restore points from a time prior to the current problem?

Very long shot and easy to try (courtesy of Derek): remove all power - battery included; press and hold the power on/off button for about 30seconds. Then release it and restore battery/power etc and see if things improve when you boot up?

It remains to be seen but I agree with #2, that is, putting the keyboard at the top of the list, followed by a check to see if you get the same issue in Safe Mode.

If there are specific keys that are giving trouble then giving them a series of fairly hard taps with the computer off can often fix them for a while. If there is even a temporary improvement it means that the keyboard is the likely culprit.

Malware and viruses can do all sorts of things but I don't think keys repeating is a usual symptom.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Here is a very simple thing to try:
In case the particular key(s) are stuck from either a sticky liquid, sticky fingers, or an impact that has caused the plastic of the key to spread and rub, try using a Q-Tip with a small amount of quality rubbing alcohol on it and clean around the edges of the particular key(s) and look closely to see that there is a small space all the way around the key(s), especially on the flatter 'chicklet' keys common on laptops.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
