Sony Viao PCG-FR285M keyboard letter 'i' not working

\015 On my sony Viao PCG-FR285M The letter 'i' fails to reproduce as either a capital letter or lowercase letter when the key for 'i' is depressed. How do I repair the letter's functionality without replacing the keyboard.The original spare part is in short supply and the cost of a new keyboard (if I can find a supplier) is greater than the value of the machine .NB: Have tried attaching standalone usb keyboard but after a few days this starts to malfunction with the letters between keyboard and screen becoming transposed. A separate problem and not an issue if we can solve the problem above.\015

Hi! I have a Sony Vaio VGN FW250j. The laptop worked just fine one day then the next, I noticed that certain keys (1,2,Q,W,S,Z)would not type in the certain characters when needed. The only time these keys input the correct character is when you have to pound the key until the letter or number pop up. Nothing has been spilled on it nor has the laptop ever been dropped. It is always kept in the case and is cleaned on a regular basis for dust....... PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!!
