    i'm using a compaq presario cq70 laptop, running widows vista.
    i've recently noticed some of my keys becoming more difficult to type. i have to press the key more than once to get it to work.

    it seems to be the following keys:

    y, u, h, j, n, m, 6, 7

    which i hadn't noticed till today seem to be in the central part of the keyboard.

    Anything split onto the keyboard?

    Also might be loose connector, you can try removing and reconnecting the keyboard. I found this video which might help with that: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6YOUNo904sk
