If you know for sure that the Bluetooth module is working, the keyboard shortcut to turn on Bluetooth is pressing the "FN" key and the "F2" key at the same time.

Im going to assume you didn't spill anything on the keyboard here...The best solution for you is to take the keyboard out and reseat the ribbon cable that holds it in place. Sometimes those cables get just a little bit loose, but a little can cause a lot of trouble as you can see. Let's see how much trouble...open "notepad" or some other writing program you have....type every single letter and number and see which ones you are missing. Let me know if there are any others that don't work....then we'll go through the process of taking the keyboard out and reseating it.
the battery is located right under the wireless card and I think if you remove the keyboard you have a chance to get to it without opening it completely ..This depends on the space available to remove the wireless card ..if this is not possible ..you have to remove the keyboard ..and battery and hard disk and the disk drive ..and ram memory ..and after that to open it completely (remove the back cover ..and basically open it in two ..) and than you will have the motherboard exposed and you will be able to locate the battery .. pay attention cause the battery may not look like a regular desktop one ...and be like a ipod one ..square ..and connected with soldered wires..directly on the board..
u r keyboard is likely to b defective or ur ram.. lightly strike/tap the keypad using ur hand..
u r a professional, open the keyboard..deep clean all the carbon
contacts beneath the keys using Iso-Propyl alcohol..put/stick
'Carbon-Dots' (available in cheap level spare market) as n where
necessary.. hope it'll work..
better to seek professional supervision esp of ur system admin/vendor....
