Hi Linda,

If all else fails you can get some compressed air cans at any office supply place and blow the particles out. In all cases make sure that the laptop is off before you try most remedies.

Hi Linda - keys stick over time because dust, crumbs, etc. get under them and cause them to stick.

Many times you can just repeatedly hit the sticking key a dozen or so times and restore it to its original status. Actually what u r doing is pulverizing the dust or crumbs into micro pieces..

Also try carefully tipping the open laptop upside down on a piece of newspaper or bed sheet and tapping it as if u were burping a baby.

Try these things and let me know. If I don't hear back cause it is resolved, kindly score my answer as a fix ya! thanks.

Keys are sticking the keyboard. Can i clean underneath the keys?


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.

Viewsonic Tablet PC keyboard issue.


Try reseating the cable that connects the keyboard first.

If that doesnt help there may be liquid around the connector and it needs to be cleaned off to keep the circuit from shorting out. You will need to find someone with the appropriate chemicals and may have to take the laptop further apart to clean it all up.

This is why when anyone gets a liquid spill i recommend getting it torn down right away and cleaned up, as it can damage things you cant even see. If the liquid has been in there too long it may not be repairable.

Good luck!

you can pull the keys out of their sockets and wipe the rubber and plastic holders with a wet cloth. but be very carefull to cloth should not leak, just be wet to dissolve and absorbe the sugar and other stuff that stick the keys. then just insert the keys in the sockets
