Sometimes the keyboard keys will jam or they will not work when something is spilled on it Do you eat or drink by the computer? If so this could be the reason why your keyboard is messed up Try disconnecting the keyboard from the computer and run it under warm water Leave it drying upside down for about 5 hours or you can run it under a fan Either way make sure the keyboard is completely dry before connecting it back to the computer After doing this your keyboard should work fine.
