Fujitsu Siemens V2030 Faulty Keyboard?

Hi, I recently obtained a Fujitsu Siemens Amilo Pro V2030 Laptop with certain keys
that aren't working.

From what I can see, the non functional keys are:
Left and right Arrows, U, I, O, 8 and Delete.

My question is simple: How certain can I be that the keyboard is in fact faulty,
and the problem isn't related to something else?

I can get a replacement keyboard fairly cheaply, and from looking at the
maintenance guide, it seems fairly easy to install as well. I just want to try
and rule out any other possibilities before I do.

Thanks in advance for any advice.

Hi, try using if possible a usb keyboard, if all the keys work then it is not a software problem. Before buying another keyboard, unplug the connector from the keyboard and plug it back, sometimes just reseating the connector, the keyboard works again.

Thanks jarotech,

Looks like the keyboard is definitely faulty so I've ordered a new one for around $20.
At that price it's worth the risk. :)
