Keyboard unresponsive Acer aspire V3-571

Ok so I regularly play video games and work on this laptop but for a while when ever I hold the w key and release it the key would still act as if it is being pushed down and would not stop holding itself down. This also happens when I switch tabs and when that happens the w key becomes unresponsive for a while then it is able to be used a couple seconds/minute later. I am not having luck with cleaning the keyboard since there is no space at all to stick a spray in to remove dust or a way I know of to remove the covers of the keyboard but all my other keys are good.

    Hi Th3da,


    Unless you can feel that the key is sticky, I don't know that there is much room to clean and the design is mean to keep stuff from getting in.


    If the W key is just occassionally not being recognized, it may be an issue with the contact and the KB may need to be replaced.
