Have you made sure that the sound options in system preferences are all set, and not muted? Open system preferences, choose sound, go to the output tab. Make sure it's not muted or something silly.

If that's not it, and you're mechanically inclined, you can try opening the mac case and see if the speakers are disconnected. Although, I doubt they are unplugged.

hold down the option key on your keyboard and then press the volume up or down button on your keyboard. This brings up the sound preferences pane. Click on the Output tab then make sure your headset is selected as the output.

Most likely keyboard is dying! Try connecting an external USB keyboard and use the keys not working on the other keyboard. If they work then it means that you have a faulty keyboard.

Any liquids spilled on the keyboard ?

sounds like the keyboard is failing check for debris under the keys use a can of compressed air, q-tips, and rubbing alcohol. If this doesn't fix the issue you will need to replace the top case (aka keyboard)

I'm thinkin' 2. This page <http://www.ifixit.com/Teardown/MacBook-Unibody-Model-A1342/1239/3> talks about it having "two small tweeters beneath the keyboard, one below the caps lock key, and the other below the return key."
Good luck.
