Anybody have issues with the MacBook Pro not registering certain letters?

The computer is about 5 years old. Had to replace the battery a few months back. Now, it's having issues not registering certain letters of the alphabet and symbols. This happened a few weeks ago, and the issue went away somehow. Now it's back.

To top it all off, some of the fucking letters are in my password, so I can't log on at the moment. If it isn't one thing, it's another with this shit.

I assume you mean the keyboard isn't working for some keys?

It doesn't look like there's a way to utilize an on-screen keyboard for logging in, but you should be able to plug in a USB keyboard, even a Windows keyboard, and log in.

The keyboard can be replaced, or you could just use it with a USB keyboard attached. You may even be able to use an Apple wireless keyboard with it.

Thanks for the tips. Somehow, the problem went away (when I first posted, it had returned). Then it went away, and now it's back. Fuck this.
