From a Hardware Perspective

We should first start from the direction of the hardware to confirm whether the issue that keyboard pressing keys by itself is caused by hardware problems.

Situation 1: Keyboard Stuck

The first case is one of the most common, that is something falls between the keyboards and prevents the keys from resetting, or the silicone pad inside the keyboard gets stuck. You can try to pry open the keys on the keyboard to clean up debris, or use a hair dryer to blow them out.

Situation 2: Keyboard Failure

The second situation is that the keyboard is faulty, causing the internal leakage of the keyboard, so the input method jumps wildly. You can try to unplug the keyboard cable. If the phenomenon of automatic typing on the keyboard stops, it means that the keyboard is faulty. The only option is to replace the keyboard or send the keyboard to a professional shop for repairs.
