I have a friend :D that has a problem with certain keyboard keys not working. Such as;

The numbers across the top of the keys - 1,2,3,4,8,9,0.
If he holds down the shift key, still nothing on those numbers.
Various random letters also not working.

Swaps out keyboards, tries a couple others, no change.

This has happened to him before. They only solution in the past was to reformat. System restore doesn't fix it either...

Any suggestions? Ideas?

What type of keyboard is it? Try the website of the keyboard manufacturer (or the computer manufacturer) and see if they have any keyboard software/drivers you can download and install.

Probably a "no-name" cheapo, I don't know for sure. You are thinking more along the lines of a driver issue, instead of something else? Would it work just fine for a long time & then just "out of the blue" start developing these problems if it were a driver?
