Type with dry hands...

On a more serious note (unless that is your problem), take the offending keys off and see if there's something stuck in there. If not, then check all the wiring and make sure nothing's loose. If you still haven't fixed it, buy a new keyboard for your laptop and replace it. If this doesn't fix it, you must be magnetic...either that or your laptop is dead (which means you have abused it...naughty boy)

If you get a virus by looking at porn, is it considered a sexually-transmitted disease?

Pour Ribena on it and then press the arrow key.

Well, quit watching so much porn. I assume cum conducts electricity quite well...

No, I would call the maker anyway because that is a health risk.

Get a keyboard to plug in USB or put electrical tape on that one key.

actually, my old PowerBook G4 used to give me electric shocks when it was plugged into a dodgy mains socket in Nairobi airport.

just you know... thought I'd put that out there

its plugged into the mains but it also happens when its running off battery. I would take the keys off but they are very difficult to put back in, i speak from experience.

then it isn't just a dodgy wall socket like what happened for me. Sorry I can't really help more, probably some sort of loose internal connection.

I get shocks from my computer all the time, especially in winter with the heaters and all the dry air.

Mainly from sitting on the couch with it, creates a static charge, I go to pick it up and I get shocked.

maybe try covering or rubbing or covering the laptop or your hands with that anti-static material that video cards come in?
