My shift keys keep sticking down and move around like something is either broken under the key or, it just has something sticky down in it. My question is wich screws in the back do I unscrew to...


Hi!
Keys are designed to be removable from the front, you just have to be careful.
Get a flatheaded screwdriver and stick it under the shift key then gently (!) start pulling up. When you feel that it clicked out the lift it up gently and remove the small wire supporting it (note not all keyboards have it).
When you're done cleaning it just stick it back.
Good luck!

Random keys will stick every 5-10 minutes of use


Usually caused by some liquid or dirt getting under the keys, you can try blowing a can of compressed air under them to try and clean them, or if you have the patience of a saint, can remove and clean each key in turn with ethyl alcohol (not advised), failing that, a replacement keyboard is the only solution

Keybd keys are sticking


Be prepared to buy a new keyboard... Remove AC and DC power before working on laptop. Many laptop keyboards come off with the removal of 1 to 5 screws from the bottom. Some, however, require the palm rest to be removed, then a couple of screws that hold in the keyboard. Be careful when removing and replacing cables.After removing keyboard, rinse with water and let dry thoroughly before re-attaching and powering up. You cannot remove individual keys, so don't try.

Keys Sticking


no! you don't want to do that if you unscrew the back plate all the plastic suction cups with fall off and you will never be able to type on it, until you place the suction cups back what you want to do is get some WD-40 (the tool for fixing almost everything) or a can of pressurized air with a areosole top and aim it at the key or under it, press it and it will blow every piece of junk under the keys cleaning it.

Moisture in keyboard of Dell Inspiron 1520


Use alchohol to clean the key board so that it will absorb the excess moisture. If this is constantly happening that your key board becomes moist, icky wet ...usually means ur cooling fan is not working properly...could mean getting a new one.....suggest cleaning the fan to get out the dust and grime that builds up with the heat and dust.

Sticking keyboard keys on toshiba satellite L10


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!!!

My acer laptop keys are sticking and to hard to push down. I need to replace them how do I do that?


no they don't need replacing they just need cleaning, you can remove the panel that goes accross the top of the keyboard (above the F keys) if you remove this panel you can remove the keyboard too, it is connect to the laptop with a ribbon cable that you can remove. when the keyboard is free all you have to do is run it under warm water (not hot) and clean the keys gently with washing up liqiud that you use for the dishes, keep on running warm water on it until the keys are free (you may have to repeat this process if the sticking persists) Now for the important part, you have to leave the keyboard to dry for at least 24-48 hours in a warm dry room before you can put it back in, press on the keys periodically to make sure they are free

Keyboard not working


What a drag! Did the tea have any sugar in it? Anything except water or plain tea won't wash off too easily. Dirt, dust and moisture don't clean off easliy. The question is, did any moisture get onto the motherboard? I've had to wash off a few contaminiated circuit boards and it took a few good soakings in warm water and a tooth brush over all the contacts to really remove the residue. From Coke to salt water I've gotten stuff to work but it has to be very clean. I suggest getting a new keyboard if the laptop is worth it and seeing if that works. It is probably salvageable but all the contacts need to be inspected.

Keyboard removal


Removing the keyboard is not nessesarly your best option, the keys have a rubber boot under them, and are held in place/returned into their postion by a plastic spring/hinge. It is possible to carefully prise the "sticky" key from the keyboard and then clean the relevant bits under it with a cotton bud soaked in a suitable cleaning fluid. It is important to take note of the position of the plastic hinge in the event that you need to put it back together. To refit the "key", position it in it's place on the keyboard and press down firmly, it should click into place
