Keyboard Issues

On a toshiba laptop, buttons are no longer working. Not sure why or how they stopped but they just did. I did not spill anything on it, I did drop it like 2 weeks ago but it has been working just fine and now has stopped. Here are the buttons that are working in their order. Please help!!


As you will see, the last row is the biggest issues, but the are a few issues with another row. Also, the aps lok button is not working. Those words are not spelled right either, quite annoying suddenly not being able to spell. HELP!!

I would also suggest you to do Flee Power, remove the battery and charger/ac adapter/power cord from your notebook, press and hold the power button for 20 seconds to discharge any residual current inside the laptop.
When a specific key is not working, turn off the computer and use a can of compressed air to clean around the problem key and then retest the keyboard. If the issue still persists, try an external USB or Bluetooth keyboard to test if it responds correctly.

After following the preceding steps and the notebook keyboard still does not work or neither work correctly, then I would suggest replacing the keyboard.
