CTRL key randomly on/off
It lites after several seconds without touching any key near it while running keyboard diagnostic test and also many other keys sometime stick and then unstick after pushing same key again in a random testing pattern
To get terminal -xmodmap to reassign the Ctrl Key I had to press and hold the spot between the Tab Key and just above the CTRL key with a PDA Stylus or a toothpick (experiment in the diagnostics test)

Note: it is very humid over here in the Philippines and I have had many keyboards/other including cellphone/TV remotes... fail from corrosion and or mold/fungus even very tiny insects getting under the membrane not to mention the salty(ocean) air from many years @ sea.
