Hello,
a number of keys on my laptop have suddenly stopped working. I am having to use the on screen keypad to write this . The letters that work are:
`1246-=
qwetuiop[]
asdfghjkl;'#
\zxcvbnm,./

So not working:3 5 7 8 9 0 r y

do you have any ideas?

sounds like some of the pins on the cable are making poor contact. you'd have to look at the manual to take it apart.and get to the cable. or the keyboard may be failing and need replaced. you could always use a standard keyboard at home

See if cleaning the keys and surrounding area helps. Blow canned air around the keys to dislodge any dirt.
