Sounds like you have some stuff stuck under your keyboard, on some laptops you can just remove the entire keyboard fairly easily, can you try that?

First off, DO NOT try to pry the keys off. You will most likely break the tiny scissor switches underneath them and then need a completely new keyboard.
You can try to remove the keyboard from the machine, give it a good cleaning with compressed air, rubbing alcohol, rags, and q-tips and see if that helps.
Underneath each key is a tiny plastic scissor switch which is what holds the keycap on the computer. There is also a sheet of silicon with tiny "buttons" on it that the key pushes down on and they press a small electrical switch on a board underneath that. Normally problems like what you are describing are cause by either some sort of debris (crumbs, dirt, etc) between the keys and silicon OR it could be residue of some sticky fluid (like soda) that spilled on the keyboard at some point.
If cleaning it doesn't work, then you can replace the keyboard. If you got it off it is simply a matter of ordering a new one and reversing the procedure. On most laptops you have a few screws on the bottom (or in the battery compartment) that you need to remove to get the keyboard off. I am pretty sure for yours you will need to remove some screws in the battery area then pry off the piece that is right above the keyboard to get to more screws to actually remove it.
