some are simple wire contacts while others have a more physical action like a desktop keyboard. If it's one with a slight mechanical action between the key and the contacts the mechanical action may be stuck due to something falling into the keyboard and catching. If this is the case then it should be easy to clean out by turning upside down and shaking or by removing the key and using tweezers to lift out the offending item.

Another thing would be to check your software key map to see if anything has been pointed elsewhere. I've seen someone go crazy when they accidentally reset their qwerty keyboard to use a Devorak layout and the different key map meant the results didn't match the keys hit.
