Check for a stuck key. Usually something like the shift or enter key catches a bit more air and gets stuck. Just push each key down and you should find one that sort of clunks down. It should work after that.
It sounds like your KB has bit the dust. there are little plastic clips under keys that can go bad and brake easy. replacing the KB is easy three screws that usually hold it in place. sometimes you do have to take the bezel off that is above it.
the piece of plastic above the key board is held in by clips,,it will unsnap..be very gental or it will break..after the top plastic is off youll see 3 screws holding the key board down,,there usally very small phillips head screws..then after the screws are out gentally lift the top of ther keyboard up..under that there will be a plastic wire strip..it will in clip at the mother board end..dont break the clip..and there is proolly 2 or 3 wires that go to your touch pad mouse...tehn just lift the key board out and follow these directions in reverse order to install the new one..
With a flathead screwdriver around the left-top top-left top-center top-right and right-top you will see a 1mm thin plastic bar. Simply push all of them in and the keyboard comes straight out. To put it back in simply put the keyboard wire into its slot and then push the keyboard down with minimal force so it will snap back into place. A bit late but for the future!
yes. you will need to take the two clips off the back of the key itself. they combine together and when you put the two plastic pieces together you can manuever it to sit correctly. you should have one plastic retainer on the bottom hooks, the middle inside should go on the top hooks or vice versa. but you must put the plastic retainers on first. then take your key and press it down onto it. you will hear it click. then you are good. be mindful its not extremely easy, it takes a bit of practice and be careful with the plastic retainers they do break. so take your time and seat it correctly. but you can do it!
a pair of tweezers a small flat head screw driver and persistence along with being careful and if you get irritated or annoyed stop and have a break and come back to it.
Take one of the keys off near it to see which way around the plastic parts go ( not too hard as you dont want the other plastic clips snapping or breaking off ) and see if any little bits of plastic are snapped - if they are you will need replacements so contact asus - if not and they are still in tact then put the 2 plastic hinges together the correct way around and then put them back in place ( you may have to slightly bend the metal clips on the bottom of the keyboard where the plastic bits fit ) which is where the small flat head screw driver comes in handy.
When you are putting the plastic parts together you may need the tweezers or possibly a paif of needle nose pliers ( being very careful as you dont want to snap the plastic clips / hinges )
Once you get the plastic hinges back in / on you can bend the metal parts back slowly and gently so as to hold the plastic bits and then push the key back on.
You should then be able to push the other key back on and that should be it.
If you need any replacement parts then you will have to contact asus.
Removing the keyboard is not nessesarly your best option, the keys have a rubber boot under them, and are held in place/returned into their postion by a plastic spring/hinge. It is possible to carefully prise the "sticky" key from the keyboard and then clean the relevant bits under it with a cotton bud soaked in a suitable cleaning fluid. It is important to take note of the position of the plastic hinge in the event that you need to put it back together. To refit the "key", position it in it's place on the keyboard and press down firmly, it should click into place
