You have a stuck key. Try raising it gently with the tip of knife while the computer is off.

No hard pressure. Just gently get under the key.

We were the unwilling, led by the unqualified, to do the unnecessary, for the ungrateful.

You've taken the keyboard off the laptop, but have you disconnected the ribbon cable?

The only way I can see for the letter y to continue to appear is that it's in the keyboard or in some kind of buffer.

Very strange, indeed.
