I have an HP Pavilion DV6000 and find that sections of the keyboard don't work. In particular, these are the two ends of the top row of letters, so I don't have QWER UIOP. I have deleted and reloaded the keyboard elements from Device Manager, yet the problem persists. Is this pointing to a keyboard replacement as I suspect?
Thanks,
Dave

What would you use to clean it? I shouldn't have to take the keyboard out of the laptop should I?
Thanks, Dave
