I am using a Lenovo S10-3 Netbook, and seem to be having problems with both the left alt and right alt keys. When I use the Canada French (legacy) keyboard layout (which is my default keyboard), the left alt key stops working, but when I switch to the USA keyboard layout, my right alt key stops working. As I am relatively new to Ubuntu, I don't have a clue as to how I should go about fixing this. I tried fiddling around with xmodmap for a moment, but that didn't do very much.

Any assistance would be appreciated.

My keyboard model is 'Generic 105-key (Intl) PC,' and I am using Ubuntu 10.04 (the Desktop edition, not the Netbook Remix).
