Keyboard problems

The keyboard on my HP Pavilion laptop is playing up.


A few of the keys stop working for no apparent reason - most of the numbers, although not 5 or 6, and a couple of the arrow keys.


A reboot sometimes, although not always, fixes the problem, but it then reappears a bit later.


I've done some research and followed some of the tips in the HP forums, but to no avail.


Is this something that's happened to other people?

It could be the keyboard itself or its connectors going bad....
First thing to do is to plug in a USB keyboard, and see if the problems is solved...
if it is then its pointing towards the hardware...
