Have you popped the key out and hit underneath it with some compressed air?

If you find that you are unable to type letters or numbers on your keyboard, it is very possible the Mouse Keys function has been enabled. These symptoms may also exist if you log in to a user account on a Mac where a different user account has Mouse Keys enabled.

Possible fixes

Mouse Keys can be enabled a number of different ways. The setting could have been activated while syncing from a MobileMe account that had the preference enabled, migrating a user from another computer using Migration Assistant that had the preference enabled, or by pressing the Option key five times (if that setting is enabled in System Preferences).

Hope this helps

QUOTE Thanks
