Faulty keys on keyboards are very difficult to fix, usually you need to replace the keyboard.
You can try removing the key and if you can get to the rubber membrane switch you may be able to use a cotton bud with electronic cleaning fluid cleaner on the contacts. Replacing the key could be difficult with the small plastic hinge components.
If you are lucky place the key over the plastic hinge and pressing down till it clicks into place.
If it works you are in luck, if you are unlucky it may not work at all, then you need to buy a replacement keyboard or use a USB keyboard with your laptop.

My '95 Tercel won't start

clutches don't pump up unless there is air in the system. Check the slave cylinder for oil leaking. There may be a switch that has to be in the correct position to allow the system to start and unless you can activate it when the clutch is disengaged it will ne difficult to start. I would also check the battery with a load test as bad cells will not give a high enough crank speed to fire the engine

Lean a book on the earphone plug to keep it in the right position. Or, pay a computer repair shop to replace the socket.

Key won't turn in ignition

On many vehicles, the key locks the steering wheel. If the wheel is turned, it can keep the key from turning. While trying to turn the key, push the steering wheel hard to the right and if that doesn't work, push the steering wheel hard to the left.

2011 sonata won't start

It's a recall issue the dealer will fix for free! Bad break switch/sensor. Pump the pedal really HARD as you press the start button. She'll start for you unless you've let it go so long the switch is totally shot!

Cant get 06 buick lucerne floor shift out of park

You have a transaxle shift lock on your vehicle which as I'm sure you know the brakes nust be applied in order to shift out of park. The switch could be bad or if your battery is below 9 volts this will happen. Most cars have a spot where you can stick a key or a screwdriver in to bypass it. Guess what? you don't on your vehicle but there is a way to bypass it and it will work about 90 percent of the time. Apply the brake and then try to shift normally. If it won't shift (which is your problem in the first place) ease of on the pressure as far as trying to shift but don't let a go. Push the lever foward GENTLY as if you are putting it in park all the way. Keep the brake pedal pushed in at all times while you are doing this. After you gently "put it back in park" then try to change gears. No jerking motions just nice and smoothly do it. This is the only way it will work unless you get down and do electrical kind of bypassing on the switch which would be very hard for me to explain because I don't have the wire color codes and stuff to give you. I do hope this works and good luck.

When I try to start my 2003 saturn vue the key is hard to turn unless I push brake very hard and turn the steering wheel. What's the problem?

My 2004 Saturn Vue had the same problem. I thought the ignition had to be changed and I drove the Vue a long time with the key hard to turn and pushing it in before turning it. I mentioned it to a Saturn Dealer mechanic while having warranty work done. He told me a new key had to be made using the key code (located on the inside panel on the driver door). They made it and it totally fixed the problem. I think any GM dealer can do that for you.

The scroll wheel moves slowly on the phone and the center button in the scroll wheel is hard to push. I have to really push it hard to enter a program etc. Can i fix this or do i have to let a professional...

You can speed up the wheel by going to Start > Settings > Key Settings > Wheel Key Speed

The center button is designed to be stiff to prevent accidental presses when working the wheel. It might may soften up over time if you use it frequently.

I hope this helps.
