Hello.

On my Dell Inspiron N5110, my "S" key has stopped working. Only the one key is not working. Every other key is fine

At first I tried restarting the computer, since that has solved this issue in the past. This did not solve the problem.

I then pulled the key off and sprayed it with compressed air. I also tried using a q-tip to gently clean around the inside of the key. There was still no change.

I also tried the on-screen keyboard. The key DID work on the on-screen keyboard.

So I figured this must be some sort of hardware issue, but I'm not sure if there are any other steps to take before looking into replacing a key or the whole keyboard.

Any help about how to possibly clean the key better or diagnose the problem more thoroughly would be much appreciated.

If your on-screen keyboard is working well it means, there is a problem in your hardware. I am using same laptop and, i suggest you to take your laptop to dell repair store or change keyboard by yourself.
