Title:

MacBook 2010 'Option' key not working

Text:

Hi All,

Great site and first time to post! My left sided 'option' key on my mid 2010 15" MacBook Pro is not responding. The right one works fine as do all other keys. I have Mavericks installed.

Is there anyway to fix this by myself as I can't quite afford to go the Genius Bar this month for a repair!

Am I looking at an entire keyboard replacement?

Any help or advice is appreciated!
