If a letter of the keypad of your laptop has been popped off, u need to request the key pad which includes the complete panel of the keys including the touch pad. You need to check your warranty and get it replaced.

I cannot use my space bar anymore after a bit of tea fell on it. Ive blown it out but can't get it to work Help please!

I presume you must have a laptop as a replacement desktop keyboard is really inexpensive. So each key on most laptop keyboards have a silicone or rubber cap under each key cap with a conductive pad inside that bridges and connects some contact points on the keyboard circuit board, when you press a key. So anywhere on the keyboard circuit board residue from say a beverage spill can conduct at various points and cause all sorts of strange keyboard behavior. So you could start by popping the non functioning key cap off of the keyboard and cleaning that key with a cloth and some isopropyl alcohol and maybe get a tiny bit of alcohol into the rubber key cap. You could remove all the keys and keep them in the precise order and try cleaning all the keys. By the way if your computers is very old, popping off the key cap can sometimes break the plastic parts from the plastic being brittle so be real gingerly and try not to break or even remove the underlying plastic hinged parts under the key cap Also understand assembling keyboard plastic parts and latching them back if they come loose can be quite tedious. If nothing works you can simply order a replacement keyboard from eBay by using your make and model of computer and changing keyboards is usually an easy job with a few screws underneath that hold the keyboard and you could watch a tutorial on YouTube on how to change the keyboard or find a friend or family member who is handy or just get a shop to do it and it probably would not cost a whole lot.

White macbook 10.5.8 pop spilled on keyboard

Ooouch ! After you've dabbed up (the spill) as much as you can, you may find some keys sticking ... i.e. when you touch (push) it (down), it doesn't pop up immediately. These are the keys you'll want to clean individually.
You can pop off the key top off (with your fingernails) from the top corner of the key. Once the key-cap top (cover) is pried open, lift the key-cap upwards and detach it from the bottom edge. You'll hear pop's when you do this. Once the key-cap is off, you'll see the mechanism under it. You'll want to clean things as best as you can ... very carefully. If the underside of the key top (cap) is sticky/dirty, rinse/wash it (with water), dry it well (before reinstalling it). Often the "stickiness" is caused by the (white translucent) plastic pieces (at the very top) not dropping flat down (immediately) after you lift it. (You wouldn't want to disassemble the parts below the (white translucent) square plastic pieces. Just clean/wipe it carefully using a cotton swab/toothpick).
You can remove the top (square plastic) pieces by pushing the tabs at the bottom corners ... downwards ... using a toothpick. This "top" square piece is actually two (square) pieces (snapped together), one inside the other. The inside piece is supposed to spin easily/quickly .... if not. it's probably sticky/dirty, rinse/wash it (with water), dry it well (before reinstalling it).
The trick is to make sure you know/remember how to reassemble the 2 pieces (after taking it apart and washing/rinsing/drying it) applying the right connection points to fit ... before you put the key-cap back on . The key-cap is put in place by just putting it in place and pressing down to snap it back on.
The larger keys (Shift, Space, etc.) has metal bars holding down the cap, etc., so it may take more effort to pop the key top (cap) off.
If you have quite a few to do, and you don't want to risk breaking anything, the Apple store is probably your next stop.

My number 1 key on the numberpad is stuck

Step 1:
What sort Of stuck ?

A stuck key on a keyboard is one of those annoying things. The typical desktop keyboard has about 104 keys, a laptop keyboard has a few less. The problem of a stuck key can be a hardware or a software problem or the key itself might be the culprit.

Hit the key several times. This will almost always unstuck a key. Clean the keyboard with an approved keyboard cleaner. These often come as wipes. People sometimes spill food and drink that can make keys sticky. Pop the keys out using a small knife or flathead screwdriver. Most keys pop right out and can be pushed right back in place. Look for something that might be blocking the key and remove anything you find.

Keyboard sometimes misses letters

If its always the same letter then it might have dirty contact.
In that case you can pop the cap off the key and check to see
if the contact is clean. Otherwise get another keyboard to see
if you have problems with that one. If the 2nd keyboard works
ok - then get a new keyboard - they are less than $10....

How do i fix a key on a keyboard that is not typing the letter all the time

things to try:

1. Blow the dust out of it and clean the crud out from under the keys.

2. You can very gently pop out the key and remove the little rubber cap under it and clean the contact. I usually use a pencil eraser very gently. also clean under the little rubber cap a bit. and reassemble.

3. Worse come to worse swap out the offending key assembly with the ~ key. and relabel the new key with either whiteout or a magic marker depending on key color. Also great for laptops that are missing keys.

4. get a new keyboard.

Problem with sony vaio keyboard

Sounds like you've got something stuck under your shift key. Carefully clean out under the keys, try a paintbrush and a hoover (on low suction if possible).

Be careful not to knock any of the keys off. They're held on by small clips which pop out or break easily.
