the: 2 3 g and space keys are not working but everything else works fine! I tried using an external keyboard and that worked but thats too bulky!
BTW my laptop is a Samsung NC10 running Windows XP (and it orriginaly came from another country {I obviosly reinstalled windows} if that helps).

See if this or this helps. You might want to inspect the keys that are the culprit to see if there is any dust/debris build under the key's switches. You can also try and disassemble the keyboard from the laptop and see if there is dust and debris build up around the latch where the keyboard connects.

Thanks for replying! I tried to see if there was any dust but the heads of the screws are old and damaged so i cant unscrew them. I even tried that trick with the rubber band but that didn't work either! Is there another way to remove the keys from the front? (without breaking the keys) Or could it be a software issue as the Laptop did come from another country so mabye the english drivers are messing with the keyboard hardware? (I think it came from Indonesia or Vietnam but i could be wrong).

P.S i just realized that it probobly is a software issue as some of the function keys dont work including: Fn Up Arrow, Fn Down Arrow, Fn F9, Fn F8, Fn F7, Fn F5, Fn F4, Fn F3, Fn F2.

Just an update on my senario: The other day I turned on my laptop and used an extarnal keyboard. Later i closed the laptop and left the keyboard plugged in and after reopening the laptop the keys all work!! (I havent tried the function keys yet but i'll keep you posted) I then restarted my laptop to see if it was just a fluke but it wasn't! It still works and I don't understand why?? So if anyone can tell me why with this new imformation i would be very gratefull.

Sorry for the HUGE gap! I kinda just lost intrest for awhile... (I feel like i'm talking to so many people yet there are probably not that many lol)
I have no Idea why it started working that one time but it doesn't work anymore. It just seems to be kinda random :/ Which leads me to belive that Lutfij was/is on to something and mabye the connector is slightly out? (I still can't open it as stated before).
