First thing I would do is make sure the keys aren't stuck, a little canned compressed air blown underneath is good to clear out any debris that may be stuck under the keys, as long as you haven't had any spills recently you shouldn't have any problems, however sometimes keyboards do short and this could be the problem, but without a visual diagnosis, it would be hard to say.

Hope this helps.

HP Pavilion dv6000 has vista loaded onto it and the top letter keys on the keyboard, except for a few, won't type.

Go to the device manager and scroll down to the keyboard. Uninstall the keyboard and reboot the laptop, make sure that the laptop has an internet connection, when the laptop reboots it will reinstall the keyboard and maybe even search for an updated driver and hopefully this will clear up the problem.

The reason why I say this is because you stated that the device could not be detected even with bluetooth driver.

Keyboard not working

What a drag! Did the tea have any sugar in it? Anything except water or plain tea won't wash off too easily. Dirt, dust and moisture don't clean off easliy. The question is, did any moisture get onto the motherboard? I've had to wash off a few contaminiated circuit boards and it took a few good soakings in warm water and a tooth brush over all the contacts to really remove the residue. From Coke to salt water I've gotten stuff to work but it has to be very clean. I suggest getting a new keyboard if the laptop is worth it and seeing if that works. It is probably salvageable but all the contacts need to be inspected.

There is a clutch drive that releases the hammer to strike. Probably needs to be replaced. Unfortunately, probably not worth repairing.
