    If you are using Lion or Mountain Lion...

     

    System Preferences > Language & Text > Input Sources >

     

    Select the "US" (not the "US Extended") keyboard.

    I was afraid of that. It is behaving as though one of your Option keys is continuously depressed.

     

    Are those the only problems you are having with your keyboard?

     

    Does the same thing happen if you start your Mac in Safe Mode?

     

    Safe Mode or "Safe Boot" is a troubleshooting mode that bypasses all third party system extensions and loads only required system components. Read about it first.

    It sounds like keyboard damage.  The best test is to try a bluetooth or usb keyboard and see if the problem goes away with that.
