Keyboard trouble

    I've got a pavilion HP laptop which seems to have intermittent problems with
    certain keys on the keyboard.

    Every now and then, the 'H', 'G' and Backspace keys stop working all at the
    same time. usually removing the H button and blowing around the rubber
    underneath solves the problem with all buttons but surely dust under one
    button wouldnt cause problems for another key at the other side of the
    keyboard. Any advice is greatly appreciated.

    But you could try using an external keyboard for a short while just to
    ascertain whether the problem IS caused by the laptop keyboard or not.
