Hi Sean, try dismantling the keyboard, there is a lvds cable which is connected to the mainboard. Disconnect it and clean up your keyboard.

Also use an eraser to rub on the LVDS cable connector of the keyboard.

If all fails, consider getting a replacement keyboard module from ebay.

Dirt or debris may have gotten under individual keys, which makes them not make good contact. Individual keys can be carefully pried up and then cleaned manually or with a can of compressed air. This usually solves the problem for me.
