Pl switch the machine off and put 2-3 pounds of pressure with your palm on the keyboard closer to the spacebar.. this will fix it.. it is caused by the weakening of the adhesive of the wires below the keyboard.

Most keyboards can be popped out by pulling them straight out and replacing them by pushing them straight in. If you have several sticky keys, you are better off just buying a new keyboard and replace the entire thing. follow the instructions on the owner's manuel how to remove the keyboard on your machine as they are different. it usually requirer removing just a few screws either from under the machine or by removing the small face plate just below the screen..Again, all laptops are a little different.
