Get a can of compressed air at the store and spray out the keyboard. Cookie crumbs get suck underneath while eating at the pc. It’s a good thing the e key malfunctioned rather then the p key. ~~ I don’t think I could post much without a p once in a while. Too much coffee!

Still going to check the warranty- must find it.....

I'm so hapEEEEEEEEEEE!
I was going to suggest shaking the keyboard
To get all the looses stuff that sticks the keys

At worst you would need a keyboard not a computer
but try shaking and if you have a can of compressed air spray that on the keyboard it will make it easier to vacuum

good luck

Get a new keyboard. Thats the obvious reason. Your computer isn't broken. You can get cheap ones for 15 bucks.




Otherwise.. use leet speak.
