You can buy a can of compressed air to blow out all the dirt.
To do a complete clean you can take the screws out underneith and give the key matrix a good clean with some rubbing alcahol.
NOTE: be aware that some keyboards have keys that are not attached to a frame; i wouldn't bother cleaning this way if you find this

Sony Vaio keyboard repeating letters


Keyboards to wear out, but are not expensive to replace. Multiple key strikes and sticking can be caused by spilling "stuff" into the keyboard, even crumbs will do it.

When I type a letter on keyboard it keeps repeating the letter


The key might be sticking down, which is probably a defect in the product. I tested an ihome keyboard (Bluetooth) and everything except the spacebar was prone to sticking itself down, no pop spill or nothing. So, I recommend to return the keyboard if you still have the receipt and get a Bluetooth Apple keyboard instead, as ihome is good for their docks, but their keyboards suck!

Letter 0 and will nt type


Keys go bad.
Most keyboards are capacitive, so it isn't an actual switch under each key, but sometimes it's just crud under they key
Try popping the key off, cleaning underneath it, and replacing they key.

Wireless keyboard keys sticking


on most keyboad you can take of each key. Try to get a flat head screw driver and pop it of with some force. You then can clean the keys. If this does not work you might need a new keyboard. Do not use water (or very little)

HP Compaq NX960 Laptop Keyboard Problem


This is generally a sensitivity issue with the keyboard. It's usually caused when the rubber depressors that activate each key start getting worn. Sometimes you can take each key off individually, take off the rubber depressor and clean the contact point on the keyboard and up inside the depressor where it makes contact. Clean it with with rubbing alcohol and Q-tips. This is alot of work and only fixes the problem about 60% of the time. Your only other option is replacing the keyboard.
