    Fairly common problem in that model if the laptop gets rugged use.
    Often that problem is caused by a small wire plug-socket becoming detached.
    You can remove the bezel and keyboard, and reseat it and usually ahve success... if not, purchase a used bezel... because the operational chips are attached to the bezel electronics. In some cases you have to replace the keyboard and the bezel... total cost about $45 on eBay.
