Hello,

Have you tried removing the key and see if it is just getting stuck, and possibly cleaning it?

Cheers,

Josh

Use the command xev in a terminal, then press the single-quote key and see what it says: you should have a line containing
keycode 48 (keysym 0x27, apostrophe)
Do you get that, or something else?

That's the apostrohe, not the comma.
