My N key of my m17 is sticking and doesn't have the tactile feel to it anymore. I have to press it abnormally hard to get it to type. Is there something stuck under it? Is the key broken? Can I repair it easily by taking the key off and resetting it or is this something I should send it in for repairs? I'm a student and this is my only computer. The laptop is big enough that I would prefer not to have to lug around an additional keyboard just to make it work.
I had this issue as well but didn't find a good solution to the sticking of the keys... I would have to pound the button to get mine to type (three of my keys do this). I ended up popping off a key by accident trying to get it to work (which slightly lifting a corner of a key did help for short periods... but end result is popping off a key that I haven't managed to get back on myself).
I hope someone has a solution to this one... would be helpful for the future.
Whenever there is an issue with one key, we usually have to replace the entire keyboard on these computers.
If you want, I can see what available options we have for your laptop.
