Keyboards are very cheap now and the cost of IT labour is expensive so repairs to PCs is not a viable thing any more. The law now is - if it breaks, throw it away and buy a new one. In your case I would take your keyboard to bits and clean it out. Maybe you have a bit of biscuit caught under the key? It is a good education to see how a keyboard is made. Take care as each key may have a little spring under it on some old models. If it is on a laptop then you might be lucky if it is a make that the keypad can be replaced. If not, then buy a USB keyboard and use that. Otherwise, throw the laptop away and buy a new one.

i have had this problem before. i found tht most repair places were not interesting in repairs, most large electrical stores also sell keyboards tht cheaply that it will cost less to buy a new and you shoudl find they throw in a mouse with your purchase. if your in uk asda is good or usa i would suggest a trip to your local walmart

I believe that it would be cheaper to replace it then to repair it... You can get keyboards for like 10 bucks these days if you shop around. Mind you they do not have any toys on them but they do the job that you want them to!
