I am servicing a client's laptop whose installed keyboard is delivering random characters along with the typed characters when typed  a normal rate, but shows much more accurately when types very slowly and deliberately.  If I connect a usb keyboard, typing is consistently accurate.  My assumption is that the installed keyboard itself is damaged and replacement is the solution.  Is there any reason to consider anything else?
