Can they get Tired on a Laptop as I find my HP Laptop not always putting letters in. and if I do not check it looks like bad spelling. I have to be more positive in pressing the keys

Am thinking that contacts in the keyboard may be getting a bit duff like in a Remote Control

Can get dirt under them.

Depends on kind of keyboard, the old membrane ones got quite bad as the contacts filmed with age

I'm no expert but a while back I watched someone, in a small Computer Shop, lift the keyboard of a laptop, dust the underside with a paint brush and clean the membrane with a Wet Wipe, it was filthy.

I have no idea whether this is possible in the case of your lappy but it might be worth looking into.
