Hi hitesha gohill. You can try blowing-out any particles that may be under the keys.
If that does not work, you will have to open-up the laptop and take out the keyboard and reseat the cable.

Taking apart the laptop for one key is rather excessive. its more likely the key has been remapped

Disagree; Food and liquids are the number 1 culprits. Desktop support for over 11 years.

LOL food doesn't make a key type another letter. it.makes a key not type. yes shorts blah blah if he dumped a whole pop on it. its still much easier to check the key mapping before having someone who doesn't know what they are doing disassemble a laptop.

Brett, that would be in Regional Settings, not keyboard; I serously doubt that hte user went in there and changed any keyboard mappings; Possible yes, but I doubt it.

hitesha gohil, click on Start, and in the 'search' box, type "osk" (without the the quotations) to see how your actualy keyboard is mapped.
