I agree with Andrew; it seems to be a hardware fault.

I had something like that happen with an old DOS palmtop. Jiggling 
(removing and reinserting the PCMCIA 2 card) would temporarily fix it. 
But that never was satisfactory.

I had a PC keyboard that I had spilt liquid too many times into, go 
awry. Taking the thing apart and cleaning it helped (fixed the issue). 
The little rubbery bits were tweaky to get back into place!
