What's the background to this - did it just suddenly stop working or is the computer new to you?

Could be a faulty keyboard.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

As some keyboard features are working then I can only think of two possiblities. Either the keyboard itself is faulty, or the ribbon cable plug that connects from the keyboard to the motherboard has worked loose.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

This will give you the general idea, although it varies with laptops:

If you don't fancy delving you might prefer to hand it in for repair. I don't believe you have a software fault - almost certainly hardware.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
