Keyboard keys are faulty

Hey! I have a Sony desktop PCV-W2/G - the one with the flip down keyboard. It is over 4 years old, and has just developed a fault with the keyboard. When typing, pressing some of the buttons causing neighbouring, or completely random buttons to also be typed, for example:
  • a types as a;
  • l types as ls
  • p causes the S-key for Mail to be pressed, opening up a new window every time - very irritating!
  • q causes tab to be pressed
  • s types as ls
  • x types as zx
  • z types as zx
  • ; types as a;
  • 1 types as `1
  • ! types as ¬!
  • the left and down arrow keys are both pressed when either is pressed

Is this simply down to dust build up or something more worrying?

Is there anything I can do about this?

I am not sure if I can simply remove the keys in question and clean them, as this keyboard is more like a laptop keyboard than a traditional desktop model, and is therefore a bit more complicated!

Any feedback or suggestions will be gratefully received!

Thank you!

clean the keyboard, remove the screw and other stuff from the keyboard then reassemble it.
