Some button on my keyboards doesn't work. I need to press repeatedly/hold it until the letter shows, and sometimes when I want to capitalize the letters by holding shift, it won't work at all. Those buttons are "E" "R" "F" "5" "F5" "F6" "Right Arrow Key".

There maybe a dying relay in the board and the keys just so happen to all be on the same one. With a odd routing

It's about 3 years old. Yeah I used to clean it. Well, it has been abused twice or thrice. I don't think so. No, nothing but dry stuff.

It is most likly a dying relay in the board then
Oh, I forgot to mention that it's a laptop. Do you think changing the keyboard would fix the problem? I kinda want to try that.
Yes changing the keyboard will deffenetly help laptop keyboards are not so great at taking abuse the fact it lasted three years after which is really good the boards are supper thin and weak the relays have like no protection.

Seems your laptop keyboard is asking for replacement. Those tiny flat keys are quite prone to malfunction after bashing or getting stuff and liquids under them. Use external keyboard for bashing then :)
