Removing the keyboard firstly requires the removal of the top plastic strip in order to gain access with the screwdriver to the four screws. To remove it follow the instructions at pages 137 & 138 and you are almost there.
Then on page 139&140 you will find the information to remove the keyboard. It explains all the information very analytically. You are simply unscrewing the four screws on the top side. On the bottom it is simply slided.
TIP: Be careful when you are releasing the keyboard up towards you. The flexi cable that is connected to the motherboard is quite short-fragile and does not have a lot of space to move so go slow until you have released the connector’s tabs and the cable is loose to be removed.
Please remember to remove the battery before you do any work in the laptop.

Tell me you like coffee black, no cream, no sugar. That makes the mess less sticky.
First off, I'd advise against dismantling a laptop. Try this first:
Get yourself some canned air (several cans) and a good vacuum. I assume you've gotten as much as you're going top get from the K/B via paper towels and such.
What we are going to do is freeze whats left and **** it out with the vacuum. Use the narrowest attachment you have .
Use the tube that came with the canned air to get it between the keys. Hold the canned air upside down so the propellant comes out. This will instantly freeze anything it touches, including you, so be careful, where eye protection.
Do a little at a time, Freeze, work the keys, vacuum, freeze, vacuum, work, freeze, vacuum. Get the picture?
You can do this with th machine running, preferably with Notepad or something similar up. This way you can tell when the keys come back to life.
I know it sounds weird, but give it a shot. I ran a help desk where we got two or three of these a month. The canned air is a little pricey, but nothing compared with the cost of the laptop.

Testimonial: "Thanks, hopefully that will save me purchasing a new keyboard"
Need to know the number of beeps. They're called beep codes. This page lists some of the Compaq beep codes and what they mean.

Thank you for your query
Best thing would be to get a damp cloth and simply wipe over the keyboard when the laptop is switched off, this will remove the stickyness.
Please ensure when wiping that no water travels into the keyboard which may cause you problems
