Certain keys dont work

All of this started a few days ago. Suddenly, some of my keys stopped working.
They work sometimes and they go out.
It's like on and off.
Here are the keys
(q,u,t,p,j,1,3,left arrow and maybe a few others.)

I'm new here btw.
Thanks for the help in advance.

Sounds like a bad keyboard.

A bit of computer info, perhaps (e.g. fill in the "specs" in your profile), might help.

I doubt that there are too many other options other then to replace the keyboard. If this is on a laptop, then you can use an external keyboard until you can get the keyboard replaced.
