My laptop' s in-built keyboard started acting incredibly strange out of nowhere, The f2, f7, f8, f11, Numpad-8, Spacebar, Tab, M, V, and the down and right arrow keys stopped working entirely, up arrow triggers right alt, right alt now triggers numpad-enter, numpad-enter triggers down arrow, right control triggers page down, and the slash on the numpad now triggers insert. I don't think it's a driver issue because booting into windows yields the same results.

This problem is not a hardware problem. It is a windows related problem
Go to Control Panel/Ease of Access/Mouse/
Turned off - Mouse Keys Use numeric keypad to move mouse around screen
If this is not then your keyboard have to replacement.

It's a yes to both questions
Quick Edit: It's happening intermittently now, it'll stop working for an annoyingly long period of time and then start working normally for a short while

1. The only two options available for in the diagnostics tool were the memory and hard drive checks.
2. No spills, at least to my knowledge. I did use a bit of isopropyl alcohol and a toothbrush to clean the residue left behind by a sticker about a month back, but ended up just taking off all the keycaps and scrubbing them clean over a sink (Although dropping 2 keycaps down the drainin the process)
