It may need to be replaced, you could try taking apart and cleaning it.  That would allow you to see if it has membrane damage, rarely are key boards a system problem.

I have had some success with using a can of compressed air & going through all of the grooves in the keyboard. Over time, crumbs, dust, pet dander, whatever is floating in the environment, gets underneath the keys & stays there.

 

Whatever you do, don't make the mistake that I did 6-7 years ago, using a vacuum cleaner hose to clean it, I ripped a couple of keys out. Fortunately, I found a brand new OEM replacement on eBay for $15, which at the time was cheap for a Dell Latitude D610. Dell wanted much more for the same part, like nearly $90.
