You can Google the question to the specific make and model of the computer/keyboard and can find specific, detailed instructions and often videos for DIY folks. I disassembled my laptop, cleaned it inside/out, replaced the cooling fan and did some cooling modifications like this. Saved about $150 to $250 on the total of what I did and I am not, repeat not, in any way a DIY person! I know this is old, but for folks viewing it from now.... Google, Google, Google as specific or generic as you want, the info is there.... Peace and Blessings
They are cheap but if you have expensive one there is a way. My brother pops out the keys and there is a thin plastic/silicone mat that lays between the circuit. You can clean that. He did mine for me before(we have the more costly wireless ones) and worked out great.
In theory, yes.
In practice, I like Pickle's idea better.
You could probably pop up the keys one by one. I would try one key and see if you can get it back on again before I did that, though. Better yet: get a can of air.
I wouldn't try to take it apart. You can try to vacuum it or spray canned air plus maybe a little cleaner on a Q-tip or something like that
Yeah, just be careful not to break anything. Taking it apart won't damage it as long as you only remove parts that are meant to be removed. You can buy cans of compressed air that are specifically designed for cleaning computer parts and other electronics.
If it's just a standard, run-of-the-mill keyboard, go for it. But do so carefully. Don't force anything apart, or it won't go back together right, or at all.
If you're like me and bought a fancy keyboard that costs $70, then don't. XD picklethepenguin has an advisable procedure for that.
