    I've got one key the number "8". That is way too sensitive. It registers if your finger just touches it or rests on it instead of when it's pressed like the other keys.

    Does anyone know a quick and dirty fix for this, or what the issue might be?

    Thanks

    I would try removing it and reinstalling it.

    Just carefully (but firmly) pop the key off, look and see what's going on. Then just push the key back on carefully (but firmly).

    Hmm. I already tried to pop it off. But the problem seems to extend to the little rubber sensor below the key. I popped off the 8 as well as the 7 (normal key). To register the 7 i have to press the rubber all the way down. But for the 8 i just lightly touch the rubber and it registers. Might I need a new keyboard :(?
