Hi Allan, just throwing some things out to see if they stick (No pun intended) :whistle:

If you mean they are sticking down when pressed then it sounds like something sticky was spilled into the keyboard?

Soda or coffee with sugar etc.

In that case since it is a laptop you'll save a lot of headache by replacing the keyboard. Laptop keys are delicate compared to desktop keys.

Or do you mean sticky keys is on?

One cause is physical and the other is software.

I'm betting on the spill since you say Some of my keys are sticking.

Good Luck
Roger

Hi, Are you saying they completely stop working or that they do not always work?

To put it another way are you saying they start out working and slowly stop working, to where they need more than one press to register or that they only work sometimes right form the start?

Do they only not work in any specific application such as word or Internet explorer but keep working in notepad for example or?

Cheers
Roger

If you are saying that there are some specific keys that don't work (both in normal and safe mode) you should pull the keys and clean the keyboard - but it's possible the keyboard needs attention from the laptop manufacturer.
