You can help isolate the problem by plugging in an external keyboard,. If the problem is not there on the external but present ( at the same time) on the internal then you will need to disassemble the laptop and look at the HP part number on the underside of the keyboard and order one from ebay etc.. make sure its the exact part number as many look identical but the cables dont line up.
I have had the same problem on my HP dv6700....backspace, h, g (maybe more) just randomly work and then don't work...must be a simple fix b/c this sounds like a problem for a number of people on different computers...we must be in some weird function or something? Any help?
This sounds alot like a virus i once had! try a system restore to the point before these problems occured. if that doesnt work run a full virus scan. If that doesnt fix the problem you may have to wipe the hard drive completly.
If there is a lock feature, its probably on it as a function key. (maybe the F1, F2, etc keys?) Function keys are usually a different color and need to be used while pressing the Fn/Function key (could be called something else, just look for something other than shift/ctrl/alt/windows key).
if it is still under warrenty, take it back to the place that you brought from along with the recept and the warrenty card, and you should get another one for free. if you dont tell them that you will take them to consumer affairs cause customers come first everytime.
complete system clean and optimization...possibly formate drive and reinstall windows...being that its an old pc, it probably is slow do to needing a good cleaning. if both those resolutions dont work then its the pc.
