You could remove the keyboard but it probably wont do any good. They keyboard on a laptop is typically a solid slate with individualy key slots that can be individualy removed and replaced. simply pop the key off, use a alcohol swab and press firmly to replace....its just that easy,...and no tools needed!!!
it wil probably take an hr or so to finish all the keys.
Good Luck!!!

    Sticking laptop keys are a common problem because of contamination build-up like dust and hair, spilled drinks, and the wearing out of factory lubrication. Laptop keyboards will not wear out if you clean and lubricate them properly. Then there is no need to spend the money on an expensive replacement keyboard with following methods to restore your laptop keyboards to the snappy and smooth performance.

when you first turn the power on there's a key on the keyboard you can press to enter "Setup". the key is often F2 but check your owner's manual. in the Setup screen you may be able to cancel the need for a password. this option may appear under Security or it may be Restore Default Settings. good luck!

Have a Toshiba Satellite L505. My key was sticking, so I removed it. Under the A key are two smaller plastic pieces. Now I can't figure out how to reattach the key. Thanks!

LOL, it's much easier to just replace the keyboard. You can spend hours trying to get that key back on even if it can be put back on. You might have broken one of the little plastic catches.

My keyboard is not responsive unless I hit the keys very hard. Its making me crazy. My "m" key isnt working unless I really continue to hit it hard.

Hitting it hard ( and I can understand your frustration), will not help the keyboard problem.
I think you have a fault in the keyboard connector lead. The best way is to replace the keyboard with a new one or good 2nd hand one ( ebay is a good starting point). You can also prise off the offending key and clean underneath, however, this is a very delicate task.

The other solution ( and I'm going to get flack from the purists for suggesting it), is to remove the keyboard and wash it in warm soapy water, rinse it and let it dry THOROUGHLY" for 24 hours, this gets muck out from under the keys and works well if you spill coffee etc on the keyboard.

Distilled water for the rinse is best

I don't guarantee the above, but if you need to replace the keyboard, you have nothing to lose
