Answers :

Since you have not had the laptop for very long it should still be under the warranty. You really should just take it back to the place that you bought it and have them fix or replace it.

If you are not willing to take it back, you can try to fix it yourself, but be aware that if you damage the laptop trying to fix it you will void your warranty and you will not be able to get it fixed for free no matter what goes wrong with it. All manufacturers void the warranty if they detect that anybody who is not an authorized servicer has attempted repairs.

The safest way to fix this would be to get a can of compressed air at Best Buy or some other retailer that sells computers, it will cost about $5 to $10 for it. Then take the can of compressed air and spray out the keyboard in the area that the bad key is at first. It should come with a small tube that fits into the nozzle so you can direct the air right into the area you need it. That should blow out any materials that are stuck in there. You may also want to take a small cloth and soak it into just a small amount of windex and clean the top and sides of the key. If this doesn't help, you will need to take it for repair, the only other option is to take the laptop apart and check the bottom of the keyboard area to see if there is something broken or stuck inside of it. But taking the laptop apart is not something you should do unless yu have some experience with these, you could damage the laptop.
