Have you checked that there's nothing sticky or solid (like dropped food) under those keys?

Check that the connection is seated OK. Unplug it and re-seat it.

Re-boot the PC.

If that fails, uninstall and re-install the keyboard driver.

ive not got the driver now. but i cant see why 4or more keys should work ,

This happens only when your buttons placement is not correct / or your keyboard driver is not installed properly just check out for the two. If still problem persists then just get it changed.

I had a 'sticky keyboard' a while back, and found the problem was caused by dust(aggravated by tea spilt on the keyboard).

I cured the problem by unplugging the keyboard, standing it upright and spraying it lightly with WD40.

Leave it overnight before plugging in.

The alternative is a new keyboard, mine last on average 12 months, but I am a heavy user.
