my e sticks. i do have dogs and try hard to
keep my keyboard clean. I have used air in
can to blow out any dirt..still stuck. Friend
thinks it is wire connection. Any idea how to
fix this...not like i can go buy new keyboard.
Oh, if i hit the key hard, it does work but i will
often get a bunch of 'e's'. thanks for any help

This assumes a lot of stuff and a new keyboard is really cheap.

Might try to pry up the key and remove it. You should or might see a post that held the key. Clean it carefully with iso alcohol
or light amount of soap on very little water rag to clean it then wipe again with clear water on rag. Never put water or alcohol on keyboard parts directly and be careful with alcohol.

Might then try a bit of armorall or even endust. Both have silicone in them. Apply to rag and then wipe post. Re-attach key and try.

"Best Practices", Event viewer, host file, perfmon, antivirus, anti-spyware, Live CD's, backups, are in my top 10
