Have you tried replacing the keyboard? Have you ensured that the keyboard is set to the correct type (US, etc.)?

Most laptops allow for an external keyboard to be plugged in, most likely a USB keyboard. I am not sure of how to determine the keyboard setting, perhaps someone else can provide that detail.

Hello BDahlin: As suggested by Kemasa I would also request you to try a USB keyboard for troubleshooting, if it works without any glitch that would ascertain inbuilt keyboard has problem, it could be dust or internal circuitry

Okay, will work on getting a usb keyboard. I used remote assitance from my computer to her computer and was able to type normal on hers through mine.
If it is the inbuilt keyboard with the problem, what can she do to try to fix it before replacing it?

Thanks so much guys :D

That would pretty much point to her keyboard as a problem.
Letting her try a USB keyboard would further verify that.

It could be dust or dirt?
Did she spill anything?
Could try blowing the keyboard off with a light dusting of air.
