Some keyboard keys are not working on a brand new High Sierra MacBook Air


A brand new 13" MacBook Air has a keyboard problem
The following sets of keys don't work :
789,  uio,   jkl,   ?/

I reset the NVRAM ans SMC but that didn't make the slightest bit of difference

The funny thing is that when I type these keys while at the login screen (for the password field)
dots appear thus proving that the keyboard is actually sending a signal

Any ideas ?

I would get it refunded to Apple if its brand new.

Yes, or take it to the nearest Apple store as they may be easily able to change the keyboard.

Well it was just the keyboard and mouse accessibility options that had been wrongly enabled by the user

If the options can be reset, do that. Or else if the user has changed too many things, just reimage the MAC to factory settings.
