This just happened, it seems that all of my keys are fully restored.

The problem was that a few keys refused to accept my input no matter how hard I clicked them. I don't eat or drink when I am on my computer. I am using On-Screen Keyboard to fill in the faulty keys. Does anyone know why this happens? Is it a virus or something?

I wouldn't know why that happened but you can scan for a virus and see if anything shows up, restore the computer to a point before the problem began, or reinstall the keyboard drivers.

Keyboards get dirty, dusty...food and drink are not the only elements which can make them dysfunctional.

Try powering down...unplugging the keyboard...turning it upside down and shaking/hitting it on something absorbent (like a bed mattress/pillow) and see what effect that might have.

There's also the fact that...keyboards don't last forever.
