It could be a loose connection, or it could be a bad keyboard. Either way, you are going to have to remove your keyboard. This is not too difficult, but be gentle with it.
Start by shutting down the computer and taking out the battery. Look around the screws in the battery compartment and you will probably see 2 of them that have a little picture of a keyboard. Remove those screws. Now, open the laptop lid all the way. You should be able to pop the bezel above the keyboard out, starting at the right side. Gently pry it up, working your way to the left. Once that is removed, there should be about 4 screws holding the top of the keyboard in, remove those. Now gently lift the top of the keyboard up and you will see the flat ribbon cable that connects it to the computer. This slides into a little connector on the motherboard, and will have a little tab on each side that locks it into the board. Slide that out and the ribbon should come out. Check it for problems, and make sure it is clean. You can use a standard pencil eraser and gently "erase" on the connectors. Now, reinsert it (or the new keyboard, you can get them relatively cheap on eBay) back into the connector all the way, and push the locking tabs back down. Put it all back together and see if your problem is solved. If not, you will definitely need a new keyboard.
Good Luck!

Keyboard doesn't work


To determine if the motherboard is faulty, connect an USB keyboard to your laptop an see if the keyboard works properly. If so then the laptop keyboard may only need the keyboard connector unplugged and then plugged back onto the motherboard.

Dust the keyboard to remove any debris.
If that doesn't work, re-seat the keyboard. This requires disassembling much of the laptop. www.ifixit.com has great guides on how to complete this for every model of mac laptop.

How do I connect this keyboard to the computer


Keyboards connect several ways. Older systems use a PS/2 connector (round) that plugs into the purple/gray jack on the back of the computer. The mouse plugs into the green jack next to it.
If you have a USB keyboard, it plugs into any USB slot.
PS/2 connections must be made with the computer off. USB connections work any time. If one slot doesn't work, try another.
If the keyboard doesn't work, try another.
