Kyboard deos not respond to the keys: "e", "d", "c" and "3"

Example sentence: vrytim I prss ths kys, nothing happns. Now I'm writing with my on-sreen keyboard. I'm clueless when it comes to computer stuff. How do I fix this? Is this a software problem, or a hardware problem?Help is much appreciated!

My keyboard hath the thame problem with the thupid eth key. The blathted thing ith driving me nutth.

All theriousneth...er...seriousness aside, usually, that is a hardware problem. Can you find or borrow another keyboard and see if it will work correctly on your machine?

Right now I'm typing on my macbook. As for another keyboard, I do not have a USB keyboard (my computer with the problem is an all-in-one PC). This has happened before and I played around with something and fixed it, bit it appears to have happened again. Another key point is that the keys that are malfunctioning are in the same diagonal succession, which would mean a hardware problem, right?

Possibly. The best (and easiest) way to find out would be to borrow a keyboard, or even buy a cheap one, to see what happens. If the external keyboard works ok, then the problem is in the keyboard. The fact that an onscreen keyboard works strongly suggests the problem is mechanical.

Just plug in your keyboard on another computer and try if it works its a software problem if not that its a hardware problem.

The OP has an all in one so that isn't an option.
