The key may be broken or there may be something stuck under it, possibly something spilled on it? The keyboard should come off, have a geeky friend look for the screw that keep it in place.

My laptop keboard is acting up sometime the letters dont want to type.sometime its a letter and sometime its another letter and then sometime it works perfectly

You may have unwanted debris under the keys. Turn the keyboard upside down and brush gently between the keys. If the problem then affects another key you know you are on the right track - the debris is moving around.

The keyboard "n" letter does not respond

Its not a virus issue, Depending on how long and how hard you have been using your laptop keyboard, the hardware can become damaged over time. Best suggestion is to have it checked out by a local BestBuy Geek Squad Technician, to check to make sure that it is a hardware issue. Otherwise, they now have the roll out laptop keyboards for easy use and travel, and very hard to break.
