Have you tried connecting another keyboard? Is the laptop still under warranty? If so, you might be able to get a replacement keyboard if that's the problem.

Life's more painless for the brainless.

No Sir. It is not under warranty. Is there anyway I can get the key board download?
Thanks for the help.

I'm not a sir. I don't know what you mean by the "keyboard download." Did you try another keyboard? A USB Keyboard perhaps?

It's probably a mechanical problem with the keyboard. The chances of it being a software problem is as close to nil as you can get.

I'm afraid that you might have to take it to a shop for fixing, unless you are 'really' handy.

Sorry, I have no idea Ganesan. If you give them a call and explain the problem, they can probably give you a ballpark range. If you spilled something on the keyboard, it might be just a simple cleanup.

To use an onscreen keyboard, go to start-programs -accessories-accessibility and click the On Screen Keyboard icon. Alternatively, you can open c:\WINDOWS\system32 folder in Windows explorer and double click osk.exe.
Good Luck
