Maybe the solution is just as simple as Cleaning the Laptop Keyboard.

To rule out software issues, connect an external keyboard, if that works fine, then it's most likely a hardware problem that can solved with a bit of cleaning or a keyboard replacement.

Although that being my first thought as well ... "ghy" okey, but "i" and "+" are not so close any more ... – Rook Jan 26 '10 at 17:33
@ldigas: I've seen a keyboard type "qwer mesd+du=querio!" when the 2 key was pressed. The circuits were a little damaged and the keyboard was scrapped. – Broam Jan 26 '10 at 17:46

If Molly's answer doesn't work, the keyboard has a cut trace or corrosion, or the keyboard logic controller is damaged. Beyond cleaning your only option is a replacement keyboard.
