When ever I have this problem with NB's

by HAL 9000 Moderator In reply to some keyboard keys in ibm ...

I always first plug in an external keyboard and make sure that the Num Lock isn't on.

Then I use a Live Linux to check out the system and if it doesn't work properly I try removing the keyboard and run it with an external keyboard to see if the Keyboard is at fault.

That generally sorts out the problem.

I had this too

If you find out what it is post it, i'd love to know. My 8 i k and , keys were not working for a couple of months after cleaning. I accidently knocked my laptop of the table and the keys started working again. Although i really recommend against throwing your laptop lol.
