Keyboard letters are scrambled up/joined together

Hi everyone.

There's something wrong with my keyboard.

My letters are coming out scrambled or joined up - e.g. "o is lo" and "p is p-" and "l is lo". U makes a beeping sound.

I've tried uninstalling keyboard. Keyboard is set to English. I've tried FN and NumLock. What do you think, perhaps a malware thing?

Any thoughts would be much appreciated?

Oh and computer is Toshiba. Windows 8.1.

And the problem fairly recent.

Try another keyboard as it could be a defect in the circuitry.

Could be debris, crumbs etc. Unplug keyboard. Turn keyboard upside down and gently tap and shake also use a clean paintbrush or similar to help dislodge any debris stuck between and under keys.
