On most keyboad you can take of each key. Try to get a flat head screw driver and pop it of with some force. You then can clean the keys. If this does not work you might need a new keyboard. Do not use water (or very little)

Keyboard malfunction


You can try reseating the keyboard but then if the same keys aren't working then that means that the keyboard is bad and would need to be replaced. Could be either keys sticking or water got spilled on the keyboard.

Letter sticking means something got spilled into the laptop, luckily its just the keyboard acting up, best thing to do in this case is replace the keyboard cause even if you clean the stick keys others could go bad down the line.
