    Windows 7 Dell Inspiron laptop, works normally 90% of the time.
    Then occasionally, the S key will act like its held down and/or stop working altogether for a few minutes, then return to normal. It will do this in all programs.

    Any ideas what this is? There doesn't seem to be anything under the S key, and like I said it will function normally 90% of the time. As it's a laptop and I'm poor I can't replace the keyboard and don't want to cellotape a usb keyboard to it.
