Hi! I have a question, I use my laptop for all of my computing needs. I have noticed that underneath my keys it is kind of nasty, I would like to remove a couple to clean up under there. Thanks for any help you can give me. I am a intermediate user.
Switch of the laptop and take the battery out.
Then, using a house key, carefully slot the key in the gap between the keys on the keyboard and push the keyboard key out. Then wipe the surface clean with a moist cloth (make sure there is no excess of water at all). Wait a while for it to dry out and slot the keyboard key back in.
If you keyboard is that nasty. You may be better off buying a new keyboard for they are only 20 bucks. For is you make a mistake and pour any solution on it and it gets to your motherboard then you may fry your computer. You can call dell for a new keyboard or you can try www.parts-people.com.
