Question about Computers & Internet
You can pull the key off (carefully pry on the edges of the key until you feel one side snap up and work around it until it's off) and check to make sure the micro switch under that key is making and breaking contact (by pressing the small round button on the switch and making sure you can feel it click), if it's not clicking when actuated, it may just need cleaning (you can use a non residual, non petroleum based contact cleaner and spray it directly into the switch while pressing and releasing it to try and clean it), and if you decide to clean the switch, unplug the keyboard to be safe. If cleaning it doesn't work you'll probably be better served to replace the keyboard rather than replacing the switch, as the other switches will probably follow the same path as the one in question.
I hope this was helpful and Good Luck.
