    Seems like you have issues with lots of other keys, especially the E key..

    To clean the contacts of the keyboard you will have to take it apart completely. Flip it over and witness all the little screws you have to undo. Remember where everything goes so you can put the thing back together again ;)

    Obviously your keyboard depends on what model laptop you have. On my Compaq 2700 model, the keys can be popped off, much like on a desktop keyboard. However they are definity more fragile and need a more delicate approach. My 2 year old has the technique mastered... :mad:
