Water won't hurt it as long as you dry it out completely. I would used canned air and a vacuum if it were mine.

How do i stop the keyboard from being stuck? I have to hit each key about 3 times before it will compute. I have a sony vaio vgn-cs11oe

Please take your laptop to the service center and get the rubber sheet cleaned(which will be present between keys and the Integrated chip). may be a dusty layer of rubber sheet should have made it harder to react.

also try cleaning the underside of keys using a vacuum cleaner before taking it to the service center.Please try to open the laptop for yourself as it may lead to violation of warranty aspects.

I formatted my HDD and now it says Keyboard Not Found

Your problem is that you need the file for your keyboard. This sucks because you are already in the middle of a reboot situation. Do you have your old keyboard or another one to get you through?

In a cabinet and getting dusty in vents how to clean?

Well once my dad bought a little air can used to clean the dust and **** outta your computer and keyboard. If you can manage to find that, it would work very well on your PS3, or if you have a Air compressor, you can use that as well (thats what i use). I heard vaccuums work well too but haven't tried it myself.
but now better things have come up
Note, Only for the 40gb model.

Bissel vacuum cleaner

That is the problem with a bagless, but if you keep the filters clean it won't be quite as dusty.

Keyboard problem with

I must agree that you have a keyboard problem only.
No KB replacement should be necessary. One solution is to disassemble the KB and clean the circuit board with warm soap and water and then with alcohol. Then clean the mating contact pad (the part that is just under the key)...these pads are conductive material that lose conductivity when dusty. This is assuming your KB is the printed switch type. However, if you have the more durable type with individual switch mechanisms for each key, use the same approach but just clean the "h" key...that h switch assembly may need to be disassembled. I have cleaned these by carefully looking for the plastic latching mechanism and then inserting jeweler's screwdrivers just at these points to carefully stretch the plastic just enough to allow disassembly. Then look for the metal contacts and clean them with a good ink pen eraser.
Overall, This can be a very tedious task, so expect to put about 4 hours into it. With practice, I have cleaned complete KB's in about 1/2 hour including removal from laptop and reassembly..
