one obvious thing to try first --- a new keyboard!

Hi Mary,

with queries such as yours it is always best to advise the make and full model number of the device concerned.

For your problem, I would start by holding the keyboard upside down, in a position such that tapping blocks of keys, encourages anything underneath to fall out.

Has any liquid been spilt on the kb?

Here in the UK in the cheapo £1 stores, is a usb vacuum cleaner for kb's - wonderful gadget!

Good Luck - Keep us posted.

Can you borrow (or do you have ) a usb keyboard to test with?

Regardless it may be that the / key is simply "stuck"...

Check to see if there is anything around the key cap preventing it from returning to its normal position - i.e. the undepressed state.
