Hi,
yes, disconnect the key board fromt the pc
open it by removing the screws underneath. make it peace-peace. wash the film and carbon sheets with water(use little shampoo, not soap). dry it up completely. Assemble and connect back. see how it works.

My laptop types 'P' automatically and I have to stop it by pressing backspace, but when I press 'P' manually it does not work.


There are two ways to solve this first I would obtain a can of compressed air, and clean any dust or debris that might be lodged in your keys. if that don't work then its best to replace your key board, Lap top key boards run from 5 to 10 Dollars and are very simple to replace. just search for your model on YouTube for replacement instructions it is usually just 2 small screws and little common sense. :)

My laptop will not come on it makes loud noise them when I push esc key it stops. It will not bring me to the screen to login my password. When I turn it off launch starting up repair comes up,It won't...


As you said it is making loud noises, most probably your Hard Drive (HDD) have failed.

Mechanical HDD failure will result your HDD making noises, and your will not be able to repair your system using software. You have to replace the HDD.

As for your important data on your HDD seeking professional help will be an option to retrieve your valuble data, but it is quite expensive.

The product key on the computer won`t work


If it has 0's in the number make sure they are #'s not Letters. Or vice versa. If that doesn't work you could have a bad key as in not a real key.

The keyboard may be bad. This can be caused by spilling liquids on it or just by wear and tear. If it is a laptop, use a can of air to thoroughly clean the keyboard.

You may want to run a scan on your computer using this free software as it sounds like you may have malware:
