It may be something under the key. Does the key press down fully?

Get quite a good keyboard these days for a tenner

Even some Microsofts for under twenty

onthelimit is probably right!
Personal experience has usually only made things worse.

The trouble is probably in the printed films under the keys, or in the chip and is irreversible.

You may be able to find a service guide click here. Most keyboards are quite simple to change.

Does the key press down fully?

Yes,

I've blown under the key and amazingly, it works now.

Many thanks for the help;

On the negative side I had a similar problem and I moved it from one key to another until I found the little silicon ball that escaped and got into the keyboard. Suggest you make sure all keys are now working.
