Fawaz Faizal, from what you are telling us, I would replace the keyboard. It sounds like it makes intermittent contacts, possibly due to a short-circuit is some of the traces. there is of course also a possibility that it is your keyboard cable, or the connector. Worst case scenario would be a bad keyboard processor. Replace the keyboard, they are available at multiple places and are not that expensive. You might want to Google for a supplier to your geographical area. Here is a video showing you the replacement and here is the service manual. Hope this helps, good luck.

You are right, if your USB keyboard is working, just replace the laptop one and it will work:-)
