If the S Key works on that you will need a new Keyboard for your NB. If the S Key doesn't work on an external USB Keyboard you'll need to look at what was changed just before the Key stopped working as the most likely problem.

Incidentally if you can prise the keys off a Modern NB then most likely the keyboard is shot and needs replacing.

Or you could try a Live Linux and see if the S Key works while it's running from a CD. Both a Live Linux and a USB Keyboard is a Hardware Test making sure that the hardware is actually working. You can get a Live Linux from most Cover Disc's on Linux Magazines at your local newsagent or download one from here
