Question about Lenovo ThinkPad R61i Laptop
Open the display, then turn the laptop upside down.
Use your knuckles like you are knocking on a door on the bottom of the laptop. Knock around where the stuck key is. It should pop up. Don't hit it reall hard ie enough to bend or break the case but start off fairly gentle.
You can also pry the key but that can damage things.
Generally if the keyboard is stuck and nothing pops it loose. The knocking trick gets most keyboards fixed. Then it may be mechanically damaged or too badley gummed up. In that case even if it pops up it will just stick again as soon as you use it. At that point the keyboard needs replacement. $80-$150 parts cost and you can do the job yourself if you want to. There are several websites that sell replacement OEM keyboards as well as getting one from Lenovo. You should be able to find instructions on line if you want to see if you can try it or expect about a half hour shop carge to do it for you. BEfore you do that don't forget to check for any chance of warrenty.
