Your keyboard is probably bad. You can fix it very easily by ordering the part online and following a tutorial on Youtube. It just involves a few screws and popping the keyboard out. Not something to trash it over or have repaired by a technician unless absolutely necessary.
Buy a can of compressed air, attach straw, slightly lift one side of key and give a few good blasts of air in the hopes it will loosen the key, repeat as needed. If no change! you can hook a external keyboard or replace the laptop keyboard.
as i understand a few letteers are not working on the keyboard . If the remaining keys are working good then shut down the computer then when you turn the system back on keep on tapping the F8 key on the keyboard till u see the option advanced boot options . On that screen select safe mode using the arrow keys on the keyboard . This would load the system to a different screen where the icons would be bigger in size , open a note pad and try typing the keys ,if its working then its a OS issue else its a issue with the keyboard. what u could also try is reseating the keyboard .If no go , replace keyboard by contacting the manufacturer
MOST LIKELY IT IS THE KEYBOARD IT SELF AND GO TO ACE STORE HAVE THEM TEST IT, IF YOU DO NOT WANT TO DO THAT, GO INTO CONTAL PANAL SELECT DEVICE MANAGE OPEN KEYBOARD, RUN CHECK ON KEY BOARD, CHECK THE DRIVERS UPDATE, IF THE PROBLEM STILL PROBLEN GO ONLINE AND BUY A KEYBOARD FOR AND INSTALL IT YOUR SELF AND SAVE YOU A TON OF MONEY.
