Can't you take the key off and clip it back on?

You should be able to carefully pry the key off using a knife or flat bladed screw driver.

Then you will probably find a build up gunk/hair/jam under the key, clear it off and try again

Slightly lift the key! But not too firmly otherwise it can snap off.....just carefully and then blow at it....might be something underneath...should help.

blowings always a good option...

LOOOOL Thanks guys will have a go x x

Or you can lick it :p

Don't try and lift the invidual key until you know what your doing.

On my dell the whole keybord is in one unit, you can take the trim off and lift the keyboard out as one assembly to clean underneath.

I would be very wary about trying to prise laptop keys upwards.

I accidently knocked off the "m" on my laptop and could not for the life of me figure out how the little plastic bracket thingies worked to pop it back on so I carefully pulled off the "j" to get an idea.

30 minutes and an "f" and a "q" removed later I finally sussed it out and got the "m" back on, then the others.

My advice is never knock a key off in the first place.

If it has a numeric keypad then you could hold down Alt and type the following combinations on the numerical keypad:
a = 97
A = 65
