I got this laptop in January of this year, and it worked fine until a couple of weeks ago. I noticed that a select few keys here and there on the keyboard (lower left CTRL key, the tilde key under ESC, 5 and 6, -, + and delete buttons) suddenly stopped working. I noticed that if I pressed down on the laptop near the upper left of the mousepad that the keys would work properly, but once I stop applying pressure there it immediately stops working. I know this is a hardware issue, but was wondering if it was possible for me to identify what would cause something like this. The laptop is still under warranty so I was going to bring it in for repairs later next week, but don't want to take it apart until then.
