Keys not working?

Hi.

So today, randomly, my keys: t, h, c, and v sopped working. However, copy and paste keyboard shortcuts still work and it also works if I use them with the shift key to type capitals like THCV. (I had to copy and paste the letters to type this response--very annoying.) All other keys seem to work fine. What do you think could be wrong?

EDIT: I have a Dell Inspiron 1525 running Windows Vista, btw.

    I'm not really sure. How can I figure that out?
  3. well just tell me the brand. the brand should show somewhere on the keyboard.
  4. Hi :)

    Its a DELL keyboard in a DELL lappy...

    Did you spill any liquids on the keyboard lately ??

    All the best Brett :)
  5. try cleaning your keyboard with cotton swabs with alcohol. you might have to take out the keys very carefully.

  6. Sorry for the delayed response. I didn't spill anything, and after restarting the keys were still messing up. However, after restarting because of a Windows Update, the keys started working fine again... I don't know what gives, but thank you all for your answers anyway. :)
