Hi There,
If you haven't already replaced your disply, I suggest that you take a look at ifixit.com. They are an excellent source for DIY repairs on Macs.
I've successfully followed their directions for replacing the displays on several MacBook 13.3" models.
I'd give you a more specific link, but not sure if you have unibody or not... This link will get you in the right ballpark though: http://www.ifixit.com/Device/MacBook_Pro_17%22
Hope this helps & good luck!

This is very likely due to a problem with your video card, you can use Apple's Hardware Test to make sure though. You can find detailed instructions on how to use AHT here. If it is found to be, in fact, the video card; you may want to replace it. Find the exact specs of your specific Macbook (perhaps on the Apple website), find the exact model of your card and buy it from the manufacturer or a place like newegg, it should not be too difficult to replace.

Bad keypads macbook pro 17


First, try plugging in any USB keyboard to your laptop to try the "problem keys" be sure it's just your laptop's built-in keyboard that's messed up.

PowerbookMedic.com sells the built-in keyboard that goes in your 17" MacBook Pro for about $85. That will probably take care of the problem, but check iFixit.com for a guide (with pictures) on how to replace the keyboard, to assess whether you're comfortable undertaking the task.

It is likely a solder joint gone bad between the GPU and the board due to more ecologically friendly but more brittle non-lead solder. You can either take the computer to an Apple store and consider the cost of having the motherboard replaced (roughly $600) if it's no longer under warranty, or search for local technicians who are familiar with "reballing" the GPU (which shouldn't cost more than $200US). Be aware that a replaced motherboard may just be a swapout from another MBP manufactured under the same conditions. Read this article for more information.

Keys not working


First off, you need to determine whether the keys themselves are faulty, or whether you just have your system set up to ignore them.
Go to Apple Menu / System Preferences / Language & Text (this is on Snow Leopard, on Leopard I believe you have to look under International). Turn on "Keyboard and Character Viewer" and "Show input menu in menu bar." Now on the Menu bar, you will see an icon of a box with an asterisk in it. Choose "Show keyboard viewer." Now type the arrow keys and see if they blink on the keyboard viewer. If they do, there is nothing wrong with your keyboard; you just have somehow set those keys to have no effect (and figuring that out is another issue). If they do not blink, you have a hardware problem in your keyboard that will require keyboard replacement.
Services like laptopkey.com will NOT help you, as they sell only key CAPS, and the problem is in your key electronics.
A MacBook Pro keyboard is NOT a user-replaceable part.
