I was playing a game and suddenly my left arrow key (<--) wouldn't work. I found out that if i press it hard it works, but it doesn't work like the other arrow keys. It also doesn't work sometimes when I press it. Does anyone know how to fix this?

Is this a laptop or a desktop?
Have you tried blowing out the keyboard with compressed air?
Did you recently spill something on it or drop something on it?

Well, that makes it more difficult. Try compressed air.

I noticed you didn't answer the questions about dropping or spilling anything on it.

Replacing a laptop keyboard can sometimes be expensive and tricky. If something was spilled on it, the problem could get more serious.

You can't blow as hard as compressed air can.

Something must have happened to the keyboard for one key to all of a sudden not press down properly. In any case, if compressed air doesn't do the job, you'll have to replace the keyboard.
