Im no computer genius, so what other options could i try to rectify this problem??
It sounds more like a problem with the actual Keyboard, could be that your keyboard needs some cleaning. If you can get your hands on a friend's keyboard just to test your pc it would isolate the problem, you would know if its a hardware or software problem.
Ive had alot of similar problems in the past with keyboards, and I end up opening the keyboard myself to clean it. The last time i had the problem of pressing one key on the keyboard and getting 2 or more other characters typed on the screen was due to a metalic pin falling in between the keys, so it used to short some keys together.
In summary, give it a clean or get your hands on another keyboard and test your computer.
