Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

Multiple keyboard keys don't work mainly g h and backspace

\015 For some strange reason g h backspace and a few of the f keys dont acknowledge on my laptop keyboard. The keys don't seem to be physically broken and I doubt its a software issue due to trying multiple operating systems. I just hope that there is a simple problem with the keyboard which doesn't involve replacing it.\015

Due to the spread of keys involved, I would say that you have a bad keyboard and that it does need to be replaced. If it was just a certain type of key that was acting funny - it may have been a setting (such as F-Lock). Since it's all over the place, I think it has been damaged in one way or another.
