Depending upon how sticky the keys are, it might be easier to buy a cheap replacement keyboard. Trust me, it takes a whole lot of patience and a steady hand to take apart the keyboard key by key and then put it back together.

Tips for a great answer:
Sticky keys is a common problem, but most are easy to resolve. If you have a sticky key issue with the embedded laptop keyboard, try this:
1. Power down the device. (Write down these instructions or print, first)
2. Remove the battery and power cable (if attached).
3. Place the device on a flat firm surface, and then open the laptop and push down on LCD screen until it is level with the keyboard, then while holding the laptop firmly in your hand, gently turn it over. Using your fist, tap lightly on the bottom housing. This action dislodges any loose particles (even organic matter) from between the keys.
4. Next, using your power vacuum cleaner (residential quality, mini-vacs have poor suction) with an attached nozzle, thoroughly clean the entire keyboard, passing the nozzle slowly over each keys for several seconds. After which use a can of compressed air to conduct a secondary pass, and then once over again with the vacuum cleaner.
5. Now, using a "disinfecting towel wipe" thoroughly clean the entire keyboard surface. Take care not to rub too harshly. This removes the top layer of sticky dirt and dust that has accumulate.
6. Next, take a cotton swab (yes, a Q-tip) and moisten the tip with (isopropyl alcohol - excellent for dissolving sticky residue), and then clean each key, but start with the key(s) identified with having the "sticking problem". Being certain to clean around the edges, on top, and then from a side entry, gently work the cotton swab underneath those problem keys. Do not worry about any excess alcohol spillage. It will quickly dry or you can afterwards use compressed air to blast off the excess, which does speed-up the drying process. While you are swabbing the keys, periodically press down the problem keys, release and swab again...repeating until the key is free and normal functioning (not sticking).
Once you are done with the process and everything is dried-out and working properly, then close the laptop, turn over and reinsert its battery module and power adapter. Open the unit, power on and enjoy.
The process is a bit more involved with external PC full size keyboards, but nearly the same actions are taken. If you have a much more serious issue that requires the keys to be removed (dissemble - with newer laptops this is easy, too.) or excessive "gunk" within the keyboard's internals, then it would be better to acquire the services of an experience technician.
