Any ideas for fixes would be great!

I have a older Macbook 13" A1181 that has worked everyday for years. The other day I turned it on and the J/K/L keys do not work, everything else works fine. I didnt spill anything on it, blew it out with Compressed air, still nothing. Any ideas?

Thanks

May be just worn from use and age. You probably need to replace the entire keyboard. Go to the ifixit web site and look up your year\model MacBook and then find the exact replacement keyboard for it. That same site also has step by step instructions on do it yourself repairs.
