Having problems with your Compaq Presario 1400 Notebook ?

I have a Compaq Presario 1400. All works fine except the j,k,l,;,n,m,u,y keys? I have uninstalled drivers as well as reinstalled and nothing seems to work. I suspect that a key might have gotten stuck and caused the problem due to the key repeat noise indicated by speakers. I shut down and restarted. I can see no indication of any keys physicaly stuck? Thanks for the help
