If itís always the same key(s), Iíd suspect something mechanical in the keyboard - give it a good clean!

If itís random keys, I reckon itís signal-related.  Try moving very close to the receiver and see if it misses keystrokes.  Try re-pairing the keyboard with its receiver (either Bluetooth or Logitechís proprietary method).

Can you pull the key tops off? If so, clean it with a cloth and then blast the whole thing with a can of compressed air (from photography shops, or maybe amazon or ebay etc). Finally could a tiny squirt into the the nooks and crannies with contact cleaner / Ďelectrolubeí-type / switch cleaner. Then the fun of putting all of the key tops back on the wrong way round. That should keep you busy for ages. ??? Only ever had to do this once, with very strange results.

Is the receiver plugged into a USB hub? I had a similar issue with that scenario when a USB drive was also sharing the hub. Just a thought.

Keyboards are inexpensive enough to replace - I've stubbornly stayed with Logitech brand for more years that I care to remember.. I do like Logitech mice too, especially the M90 model of which I've had at least three so far!
