Powerbook G4 15" Keyboard Keys Prob

I was wondering if anyone can help me on this. I have a powerbook G4 15" and sometimes, the number 7, J, U, & M keyboard keys don't work. This is only sometimes, but it's becoming more frequent. Does anyone know how to fix this?

Sounds like you may need a whole new keyboard and/or keyboard ribbon cable.

Time to check ebay!

You may just want to try:

PMU reset
PRAM reset
Safe Boot

This may or may not fix the problem, but it's worth a shot.
