Angry Option Key Not Working

My left option key (alt key) isn't working.

Any ideas?

Is it the keyboard or a pref?

happened to mine once, on a rare occasion dirt (or water) will get deep inside and get in between the two sheets that make a connection. If you want to, take it apart and whipe those sheets clean and make sure nothing is between them.
