I think someone else had this problem before...well I have an HP Pavilion dv6113us Entertainment Notebook PC. I've had it since December 2006. My current problem is that only the numbers 5 and 6 work. [I have to copy and paste numbers whenever I want to use them, it's terrible] and at least the down and right arrow keys don't work either. I'm pretty sure the left alt key doesn't work either. Another problem unrelated is that my CD-rom never stays in place, because it will sometimes stop sensing a disc is in or think it's not there.
A little history of my laptop: a problem starts with it every year now around this time. It's strange.
Winter 2007: the laptop would randomly shut off when typing. I took it to get fixed at a local place and they had to fix some wires under the letter "L" key
Winter 2008: The computer screen would be on, but it would be showing a black screen...eventually the laptop place said they couldn't fix it and it was the motherboard underneath. Sent it in to HP and they replaced it for free
Should I try to get it fixed again or should I just get another laptop altogether? I'll be going to college next fall, it might be good to just invest in a whole new one.

One of the workstations had problems and was sent back. Not only did they fix it but they added upgrades as a way of thanking us.
