    You may need to get a new keyboard. It's possible that it is just a bad connection, and you can check that, but chances are that you'll just need a new one. I just replaced the one on my Satellite because it was silver and I wanted black. It was not too difficult.

    If you want to be sure it is a hardware problem and not software, boot up a different operating system and see if they work.

    Parted Magic disk partitoning tool (Bootable CD image)
    If you prefer a bootable USB key, download and run Linux Live USB Creator. Choose the Parted Magic distro, and it will download it and automatically create a bootable USB key.

    This CD (or key) contains many useful tools. You can partition, recover files, recover lost partitions, make disk images (by several different methods), transfer files between media, scan for viruses (It can serve as an Alternative Trusted Platform for search and elimination of rootkits and bootkits), examine and benchmark hardware, access the internet, and much more.
