gateway keyboard keys not working
I am having a problem with certain letters on the keyboard not responding. i have a GATEWAY NV52. I have cleaned the keyboard to no avail. is this a software or driver issue? i took battery out and left it out for a few minutes. reinstalled it. it works better now but still have to retype to et button to work. it is only certain keys s, m, h, and d. please help.

Have you ever opened your laptop up? Could the keyboard connection to the motherboard possibly have been unplugged a bit?
