Default 7230 Keyboard Problem

Please Login to Remove!

The keyboard has started acting up on my 7230. When I hit the key, it prints "ws". When I hit it prints "tg". The key poduces "ed". The power/light button produces "qa". This is extremely annoying. All other keys seem to work correctly.

Anybody have an idea what's going on?

My keyboard used to stick badly, I took it apart cleaned it out with alcohol and compressed air, and it is good as new. I did use a T-6 screwdriver.
