Keyboard key y either sticks or only registers if touched 2 or 3 times.

By 1906Doemel ·
I have removed the key cover and blew air but did not find anything obstructive.

Isn't there a set file somewhere that I can access and see if the "y" was accidentally put into a delay mode?

Key damaged

Nothing in windows can configure one key to have a delay, the delay will be set to the whole keyboard.

Most probably some liquid spoiled into the keyboard, there is a special cleaner for electrical board, can be used for keyboards that **** some air (Nitrogen), this can help.

if this is your work computer, have them buy a new one.

if you want to waste your time trying to be a computer tech and figure out if sticky keys have been turned on...

The other thing that can happen here

Is that the Printed Circuit on the Substrate of the Flexible Keyboard membrane just wears out.

Once the contact/s are worn away there is no easy solution to fix this short of buying a new keyboard. Though on occasions I have used a special pen to redraw a track/contact to get a keyboard working again but that was only in remote locations where a replacement was not quickly available.
