    Ok so I have a MacBook Pro and I've been having this particular issue for a few months now. Out of nowhere an entire section of my keyboard stopped responding. The weird thing is that when I login to my MacBook the keys respond and when I use those particular keys as shortcuts they also respond then too. They stop working as soon as I try to type normally. So I was wondering if anyone knew what the issue is, and if it is something I can fix myself or take it to be fixed and if possible the typical price range for that kind of repair.
    Thanks for the help!!

    There's precious little that you can repair yourself on a MBP. You didn't provide many details, like the model and year of the laptop.

    Have you checked System Preferences --> Accessibility --> Mouse and Trackpad and ensured that Enable Mouse Keys did not get inadvertently checked?

    @bmg98, still in warranty? Let Apple deal with it. If not in warranty, ask what they’d charge to fix.
