    Keyboard Question

    I spilt juice on my laptops keyboard. :flaw: The keys all work fine but they are harder to push down. They come back up just fine so they don't stick or anything. I was wondering if there is anyway for me to clean them. I have asked others but unfortunately my friends aren't very computer savvy or whatever you would call them. I hope someone on here can help

    Re: Keyboard Question

    under the laptop there should be screws. if you unscrew them you can take off the keyboard and either replace it or clean it. unfortunately, i do not know exactly which screws you need to unscrew.

    ok. I know I once accidently popped off my F4 key and was able to put it back on again. The keys that I need to clean are my Caps lock, left tab , left shift, left CTRL, A, this key (`~), and finally the 1 key. Do you think I would be able to pop them off clean them and put them back on without a problem, or do you guys think that would be to big of a risk??

    depending upon the type of computer and the construction of the keyboard [are the keys pegged on, or snap fitted] my wife's mac, and my asus you can't take off the keys, but my hp, and alienware, you can.
    given you said that you'd done it before, why not try it again.

    oh and the (`~) is called the tilde key. :D
