HP mini keyboard acting stupid!

HP mini 210-2072CL 32bit 1.66 ghz 2 gig ram.
Recently while on a newspaper discussion thread commenting on a post the group of keys to the right stopped working. That will be the P,0,-,/,", keys and maybe a couple more.
I did a system restore and they started working fine until once again while I was online they just suddenly stopped working again. If I play with several at the same time the keys come back. Weird. SO I bought a wireless PS/2 in order to type without the worry but that defeats the purpose of having a netbook when I have to haul the PS/2 around.
I was wondering if this problem was a software issue, a keyboard issue or a virus type problem. Could I have picked up something on the internet or from one of the newspaper discussion threads?
BROWSER - Firefox w/private mode and session only cookies on the exceptions list. Clear cache on exit. MS Windows Defender.
I'm ready to buy another laptop but rather not spend the money if I could fix this problem.
Anyone know of this keyboard issue? What to do?
Your advice is well appreciated - Thanks!!
