Hello,
So some of the keys on my keyboard aren't working any more. "Q" "W" "E" "R" "U" "I" "O" "P" the left and up arrow keys the pause key. Right now I'm actually typing with my on screen keyboard. So can I get some help.
Thanks

Clean the keyboard with compressed air (blow compressed air in the gaps between keys). This removes some lint, dust and food particles.

Shut down the laptop, removed battery and cable for a moment, press and hold the start button for 58 seconds... and replace the battery.. start the laptop.. if that does not work a technician is a must.

Before you go to a repair shop, try an external keyboard and see if the situation repeats. If it does it's not a keyboard issue.
