No, I never spill anything on the keyboard before, and I'm not sure if there anything underneath them. I just found it weird that only a couple keys stop working.

Yah, that one is weird. Those keys do nothing at all anymore? It's interesting how they are all on the top half of your keyboard. Probably not your problem, but is your keyboard language set to English?

Have you tried restarting? when you do (if you haven't) take the battery out and unplug it to try a hard reset *shrugs* :dunno:

Jabo: the keyboard is set to English, also the those keys stop working like 45 mins ago and this is the first time this had happening.

Snapcrotch: I did a reset and a shut down, but I haven't did a hard reset yet.

Do you have a spare keyboard that you can plug into a USB port on the laptop? Then you can atleast use the laptop. Also if that keyboard happens to do the same thing with the certain keys it would mean it's a software problem somewhere, though I doubt it will do the same thing. Hopefully there's not something wrong with the keyboard in the laptop, those can be a pain to replace.

Edit: Try booting into safe mode or DOS if possible and see if those keys are still not working.

Okay I shut down my laptop for an hour so it can cool down then I recently turn it back on to see if any of the nine key would start working again and they still not working. What I don't get is that if the keyboard was going to hell, would all the keys stop working instead 9 of them? I just found it odd that all.

The keyboards that I've seen keys crap out were all grouped together. Those keys seem pretty random to me. Like one keyboard I had the 3 E D and C crapped out, they were all diagonal to each other. If it's not the software messing with the keyboard I might actually lean towards the motherboard being messed up rather than the keyboard itself. Did you try booting windows into safe mode and test the keys?

Okay, and no I haven't booted window in safe mode yet.

EDIT: I try it in safe mode, and those 9 keys are still acting up.

ok, here is my suggestion. find out how to remove the keyboard. there is usually a strip or panel that pops off then you have a few screws and the keyboard lifts up.

CAREFUL NOW!!! the keyboard is connected by a thin ribbon cable, make not of how it is routed and folded and connected. Most keyboards use a sliding connector, open the connector and remove the keyboard.

now tip the keyboard on its edge and tap it, any hair and dirt should fall out. take some canner aire and blow down each row of keys.

Replace the keyboard and retest... if it works, it works, if still does not work, get on ebay and buy a new keyboard.

My F5, F7 and Windows key quit working.... the two most used keys... I need F5 and F7 in my DJ software to get back to the music library, and the windows key is obvious.

I ordered a new keyboard before i blew my other one out, the new one did not fit cause the ribbon cable was too short.... but after i blew the old one out it worked

I remember when I was plugging in RAM to this laptop. One slot is conveniently located under a panel on the back. The other is inconveniently located under the keyboard, which requires a long and careful process to remove. The guide said to unplug the ribbon, which I did. It didn't, however, tell me that putting the keyboard back on would require intensely finicky placement of the ribbon (I had to get it in a slot that was slightly raised, almost without looking) followed by equally finicky insertion of a plastic connector (I had to use a chopstick to push it in.) When one of the plastic hooks on the connector broke, I nearly cried. But it held anyways.

Anyways, computer parts simply fail sometimes. As said before, find a new keyboard, or update your drivers.
