I haven't been able to find other posts regarding a problem I'm experiencing with my 10.8.2. install on a 4530s with Canadian bilingual keyboard.

So far, the problem is intermittent, sometimes starting at boot, sometimes starting a few minutes after boot, sometimes disappearing after waking from sleep.

Specifically, the keys Q, W, E, R, P, O, and 0 (zero) on the num pad stop working.

Would anyone have advice on how I might eliminate this issue?

That's weird. You should do some debugging. Run the debug version of my VoodooPS2 and take a look in Console system.log when this is happening and see if the keyboard driver is seeing any action when those keys are pressed.

Sounds like a hardware problem though.
