If the issue is only 1 key,
Please try rebooting system in safemode and check if 'Alt' key works (to figure out if the issue is with OS or Hardware)
You can even try getting into BIOS and check the Key functionality.
Can try to clean or blow the dirt around the Alt Key.
If nothing works need to replace the Keyboard.
If it's just the one shift key messing up it may be dirty. Pick up a can of Air-dust and blow out the key board and all around the "shift" key....also look to see if anything is spilled on it too....this can be fixed with isopropyl alcohol and compressed air. if this don't work then you need a new keyboard.
if water spilt in any eletronis good first we shut down this thing and pullout battery then it prevent to damage any part. after this we can blow air and make all part and bodry dry . then it can work and prevent from damage
THE KEYBOARD CAN BE CLEANED WITH A DILUTED SOAP ( SUNLIGHT ) AND THEN CLOTH DRIED AND PUT OVER A LIGHT HEAT SOURCE OVERNIGHT OR HAIR DRIER ON LOW .....DO NOT PLUG IN TILL CONFIDENT THAT IT IS DRY . YOU MAY ALSO TAKE THE KEYBOARD APART BUT THE KEYS MAY FALL OUT AND YOU NEED TO PUT BACK IN SAME SEQUENCE AS IT ORIGINALLY CAME . KEYBOARDS NEW ARE FAIRLY RESONABLE BUT IF THIS ISN'T AN OPTION THE CAN ALSO BE PICKED UP AT SECOND HAND STORES OR GARAGE SALES FOR UNDER THREE DOLLARS.
Check if there is anything stuck or jamming the button before buying a new one, but i think it is likely you'll get a new one. Because sometimes the key won't work, as somthing is preventing the trigger.
It's either dirty and if it isn't then you have a defective key. I would replace the keyboard under warranty if I could or just get another one. To clean it try using a can of compressed air from a computer shop, Staples or Radioshack to blow particles out from between the keys.
I would completely remove the keyboard from the unit, it will be easier to clean and you can check to make sure that where your keyboard plugs into the board is tight, and that nothing in the cable looks cracked etc. Just be careful when taking it out, like dont bend the keyboard or be rough and know your keys off, they can be put back on, but its not an easy task, and takes patience.Most keyboards are easily removed by removing the strip at the top, usuall where the power button is etc. You might try just blowing it out really good first, maybe dust or a larger particle is caught under those keys.
Well .. this is because there is carbon under your keys so the best solution for you is that
take a tub
add dish washing liquid
add some water
dip your key board for 1 hour
and leave your keyboard out of your house for drying make sure that the sun dosn't come directly to your key board
make your you let it dry for two whole days because a tiny drop of water may cause you a serious problem .. hope i helped you
