    Try holding Function key (fn) with volume or brightness. Does that work? If so, go to Keyboard and Mouse in System Preferences... and under the Keyboard tab clear the checkbox regarding function keys (F1, F2...).

    I did just that stoopid thing myself and then I was panicking as I thought the -20C temps outside had messed up the keys as I took it to work today.
