Thank you so much. Hopefully they will have the part here is South Africa. It's strange as only certain keys don't work. Was all of a sudden. I was on the computer working when some of them stopped working. I will see if I can get the part. Thanks for the help and enjoy your day.

@mel4toti if the same keys fail in any application it is most likely a keyboard issue. Consider replacing it by downloading the maintenance guide from here. Page 49 will tell you how to replace the keyboard. Part number for a US keyboard is 646125-001 and cost should be no more than $20USD
