    I have a Gateway M-6817 Notebook and the "P" and the "[" key won't work on the keyboard. The keys push fine just nothing happens when pushed. Are there like two keys to some sort of circuit that would make just those two stop working? Any help is appreciated.

    Sometimes just cleaning out a keyboard does a world of good. It might be just dust underneath the pads that are causing the issue. If that fails you may be looking at a new keyboard. Jazz

    keyboards are relatively cheap and not hard to replace on a laptop. I have done it several times.
