I'm having some trouble with certain keys (G and H) require more force to make them work

The thing is, I have no problem with having to press them harder if I press another key right before I press one of the two and work perfectly fine

Is there anything I can do to fix this? I've tried cleaning them, but I would be willing to try any cleaning tips anyone has for me



It is a Microsoft Wireless Keyboard 2000

You could try popping off the keys and deep cleaning or pop them off to see if it is just bend or something and not just from being dirty...how old is the keyboard? Might be broken and u just need a new one

I've cleaned both of the keys and that doesn't help at all; also it's not that old of a keyboard, it's only about a year old.

How did you go about cleaning the keys?
I recommend spritzing them with a little compressed air.
Try that if you havent already.
In the beginning there was the command line.

My brother also spilled tea on laptop keyboard. He cleaned all the keys himself by following the tips of laptop cleaning here http://www.replacementlaptopkeys.com/blog/laptop-keyboard-cleaning-tips/.
