The same thing happened to me with my gateway keyboard. The f2, f3, and f4 keys were stuck down in the keyboard itself. I just wanted a quick fix, so I soaked a paper towel, rung it out, and cleaned the keys like that, all the keys work wonderfully now

How to replace keyboard

If you want to clean under the keys, take a knife or something thin. Then, stick it under the key and pop it out. just use a lightly moist towel to rub under the keys and on the contact points. make sure to dry it off well and make sure its not plugged in when doing this.

My shift keys keep sticking down and move around like something is either broken under the key or, it just has something sticky down in it. My question is wich screws in the back do I unscrew to...

Keys are designed to be removable from the front, you just have to be careful.
Get a flatheaded screwdriver and stick it under the shift key then gently (!) start pulling up. When you feel that it clicked out the lift it up gently and remove the small wire supporting it (note not all keyboards have it).
When you're done cleaning it just stick it back.
Good luck!

Keys Sticking

no! you don't want to do that if you unscrew the back plate all the plastic suction cups with fall off and you will never be able to type on it, until you place the suction cups back what you want to do is get some WD-40 (the tool for fixing almost everything) or a can of pressurized air with a areosole top and aim it at the key or under it, press it and it will blow every piece of junk under the keys cleaning it.

There may be some moisture/dust in the circuit beneath the keys in the keyboard. Open the Keyboard , wipe the circuits with a dry tissue paper and reassemble the keyboard. Its just the rubber beneath the A button is also pressing the Caps lock contact on the circuit below the KEYS. The Simplest solution is replace the keyboard.

Keyboard sticks

Looks like you need to clean the keyboard. It maybe a dust or something that's stuck in there, too. Get a clean, dry paintbrush and you clean the key as if to take away the dust (I do it, too). Do not open your laptop unless you know how to do it. Hope this helps... :)

Keys stick

Do the key buttons stick down, or do the typebars with the typefaces on them stick up? It sounds like a typebar problem to me. If so, the typebar segment (metal piece with slots the typebars pivot in) needs a thorough cleaning.

You may try removing it and cleaning out any gunk on the key shafts, and possibly tighting the spring if there is one. If that doesn't help you might just have worn it out, and you'll need a new one.

I haven't tried this one myself, but applying a little WD40 might actually help lubricate the key (and loosen gunk), but don't "fill up" your keyboard.
