Question about Sony Computers & Internet
I have missing letters and numbers on my laptop keyboard when I type. Caps lock will not come on, no light. only effects numbers and letters in top two rows. can you help? Laptop recently purchased, refurbished, was working for a few weeks now.
Keyboard damage? Try a USB keyboard to check it before buying a new one.

SOURCE: laptop keyboard not working
Random keys or a row of keys not working indicates that the keyboard is failing and needs replacing. Before replacing, you might try taking the keyboard off and cleaning the connection. A little dirt or corrosion built up might cause this, but most likely the keyboard has malfunctioned.

Accoring to the problem you have mentioned i am sure the keys are not connected properly. The tab key is connected on the Caps lock key. Moreover make sure you press the fn key to check for any changes as it is the key which helps you toggle in Laptop

If the keyboard is locked ALL the time, try unpluging the power supply, remove the battery, then push and hold the power button and any key on the keyboard for at least 30 seconds. then reinstall the battery, plug the pwoer cord back in and reboot it.
I had the same problem and that is what the DELL techs had me do. I had the problemm frequently for a while and then it just quit recurring. I haven't had the problem for a long time now.
I hope this helps.

It sounds like your keyboard is starting to go. Try plugging a usb keyboard and using that. If your keyboard needs replacing, it may be around $50, but that will depend.
