How can a novice "unstick" the keys of a netbook?
Recently, the "K" key on my netbook has started sticking, and fails 50% unless I push hard. I'm technologically challenged. Is there something easy I can do to get it to stop sticking, or do I need a tech expert?
"Gently" pry off the key and see if you can clean under it. Other than that, not much you can do.
Beyond what kschang mentioned you could always replace the keyboard. You can find them on amazon or eBay and the tutorials are on the net. It isn't very hard. I actually wrote a hub for to shiva keyboard replacements and it gets a fair amount of traffic so there are folks giving it a shot.
