some keyboard keys don't work

Toshiba Satellite c655-s5082 laptop

Specs: Windows 7, AMD Turion x2 Dual-Core Mobile RM-74 2.20GHzz/3.00GB RAM
I was on the computer previously, put it to sleep, & later returned to use it or so I thought. Now certain keys will NOT work at all, regardless of capitalization or use of special functions (brackets for example): d g j q s { } [ ] < > , .(the period). I currently have to use the On-Screen Keyboard to type, which is very slow. Rebooting, btw, did NOT make a difference...remained exactly the same. Plus, Sticky Keys are OFF. This is a major problem for me because I teach English online and need ALL the keys to work properly ASAP. I have online classes tomorrow. Any recommendations?

In an emergency you can try a USB keyboard, but I suspect that if it is software/driver related you may have the same problem. The first thing I would try to fix the problem is to try a system restore to before you began having trouble. If this does not help, go to the manufacturer's site and download updated drivers for your system and install them. This could have been a windows update, which either, especially updating the driver should fix (especially if this was an upgrade from Vista and you still have Vista drivers).

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
