The keyboard on my HP Pavilion dv6z-3000 Select Edition laptop is acting funny: it's sometimes typing characters like
134, adjusting the volume, or triggering the print dialog, all by itself, or as I type. This can happen when I press certain keys. Sometimes, the keyboard fails to respond altogether. This is happening regardless of the software involved. Is there a ghost in my keyboard--is my keyboard broken? No liquid has been spilled on the keyboard.
Sample of text from faulty keyboard (normal
QWERTY...ASDF...ZXC... sequence is expected):

This is not the first time I've encountered this problem. The system's keyboard was previously replaced under warranty for the same problem.
I had a lot of trouble with just typing this question...
