    I have the same problem and it's killing me slowly...


    Got the same probem in boot camp, so I guess it's a hardware issue.

    I have the same problem. It comes and goes, an it basically maes certain tasks nearly impossible. Just began a month or two ago and becomes progressively worse over time.

    I own an early 2011 17" Macbook Pro and just started seeing this problem. In fact the exact keys have stopped working. I have to type this out with a USB keyboard. Luckily it's still under Applecare.

    Don't hold your breath hoping Apple will fix it for nothing because they will not. I paid R3000-00 (US$ 300-00) to have my housing, topcase, keyboard with backlite replaced. 12 months later extacly the same thing, and they say sorry only 3 month warranty. This is a 2011 Macbook Pro at home that gets used maybe once a month to skype.

    I'd go to the store. Managers have some leeway and they may fix it for free.

    Uh oh. I have the same intermittent problem with my late '09 MacBook. Started slowly with the "N," which frequently has to get retyped. Problem has now moved up the column to my "H," "Y", and "6." When the latter set get stuck not typing (as they did during this post), a vigorous and thorough pounding across all the keys "unsticks" them. Does that simply mean the contacts might be dirty, and the thrashing temporarily removes the problem? Then when the dirt impedes electrical contact again, I get the failure across that middle column of my keyboard? Suggestions?

    I have a MacBook Pro 2012, Retina... For about a week now, I've been experiencing the loss of my 'ASD' keys... They stopped again yesterday, after having come back to life the day before, for no apparent reason. I thought that it might be an overheating issue, but no other keys are affected, just keys in the same row as 'FGHJKL.' I just re-installed my OS and it was fine until after I install and worked on my Bootcamp partition for a bit.


    Could the Bootcamp partitioning process have anything to do with it or the windows side drivers, maybe somehow tweaking the hardware bios?
