I'd suggest first testing it with a "live CD" (either FreeBSD or Linux) just to
eliminate the possibility of a software problem. If it's definitely hardware, a
possible cheap/temporary fix would be an external keyboard. As for repairing a
hardware problem, if a replacement keyboard didn't solve it, then it's probably
the mainboard and I'm afraid that's likely to be an expensive repair. This is
the big problem with laptops - expensive and proprietary parts.

good luck,
Robert
