    Borrow a USB keyboard and plug that in and see what happens with the "R" key.

    Turn the keyboard upside down above a table and (failrly) gently tap one edge (not the keys), on the table-top for a few seconds. Be amazed at what falls out, and if the R keys is reliably working again I will not be the least bit surprised.
