Hope someone can help.
I have a toshiba laptop that has worked flawlessly for 2 years, and now it has a problem I can't fix.

The keyboard will not respond sometimes, othertimes it is fine.
if I try to click on an icon on the desktop, it sometimes starts a different program.
I have run Malware Antibytes 4 times, and it can't seem to find it (yes I updated it first)
If i open the notepad, the letter M will start to fill the page, then stop and then start in about 1 1/2 minutes.
If I try to type, the letters won't come up, but some of them will..
I have a second computer which I am using to post this.

I even went and bought a usb keyboard, and it works, but not the regular.
also, when I reboot, the laptop beeps like keys are being pushed, but nothing is being pushed, but then when the options come up (safe mode etc...)
It wont accept the enter key, I have to use the USB keyboard to type enter...

any ideas??

It was working fine, and there does not appear to have anything spilled on the keyboard...

According to me, you should contact of Hardware engineer because without check out your Laptop, nobody can't get solution in Forum Discussion. If you have Laptop Warranty card then first you should use this. I think this is Convenient option for you. Because of this you can get solution and save money also.
