Hi erragon :D
Please remember it is always helpful providing information about your computer when seeking assistance, it enables others to help you better, what make and model laptop is it?
It is possible that there is debris lodged beneath the key, with the laptop powered off try blowing out any debris with canned compressed air, if you do this keep the bottle upright so no fluid comes out and goes inside the laptop.
Couple of suggestions for you to look at if cleaning the keypad doesn`t resolve the issue;

2: http://www.ehow.co.u...p-keyboard.html
I hope one of the above helps resolve the issue and let us know how it goes.
