Anyone good with laptops?

My Laptop is driving me crazy, i can only type using an external keyboard as if i type with the original keyboard it acts as if the Windows key is pressed in (for example typing L locks the screen, P switches between monitors) also the space bar doesnt work because of this and it makes it impossible to do most things, if i press 7 the external keyboard doesn't work until i press the windows key on the external keyboard.

The Win key itself is not jammed, the on screen keyboard shows it as being pressed in all the time (and so the on screen keyboard doesn't work either)

I installed Ubuntu to see if that would help but its just made things more difficult, anyone have any ideas at all what i can do other than send it in for repairs?

thanks
