Sounds like the keyboard is cracked or something got spilled on it. There are only so many traces for a keyboard, many of them shared, so when it gets wet or a trace crossed, multiple keys will come up at once. Most replacement keyboards are $50 and under on Ebay and can be changed out within 30 mins.
