Windows 7: Problems with Fn and shift keys

Problems with Fn and shift keys

A week ago, I think, some of my keys stopped working.
That included the Fn key combined with some other keys and shift key with capital "M", ""(scandinavian letter) and "L".
If I want to use those keys I have to put the keyboard on Caps Lock, and that is getting tiresome...
The Fn key works on some of the keys, but only for sleep mode and the brightness control.

I haven't spilled anything on the keyboard, and when I try to use the screen keyboard, it doesn't work either...

Is there anyone here who can help me with this?

I looked through the threads with similar problems, but I couldn't find anything that helped.

Thanks in advance!
