Keyboard Issues

A friend is having some really weird problems with her computer and she asked me for help. She has an old Microsoft ergonomic and it won't type an "x", so she bought a new MS ergo one and it worked fine until last night and now it won't type an "n". I plugged in an old Dell keyboard and it works fine.

Has anybody else had a problem like this and, if so, how did you fix it?

Been spilling coke on the keyboard? The carbonated kind, not the white kind

Good cleaning may solve it, pop the key off with a screwdriver and spray it out with an air duster. If that doesn’t fix it it’s probably keyboard time again. Mechanical keyboards can be had for pretty cheap and are much better than a standard.

Non functioning individual keys is normally caused by debris in the key switch. The solution is to carefully prise off the keycap and brush out the debris.

Yes, I did that and it was squeaky clean under them. I think that the keyboard just went bad because I tried it on 3 machines and it was the same on all of them.

Thanks for the suggestions.
