    I am using a Compaq Presario V2000 laptop
    Running Windows XP

    I am wanting to clean the keyboard. I have used the compressed air cans on it already but it still feels like there might be something stuck under a few of the keys that the air did not reach. What would the best recommendation be to clean the keyboard? I have not spilled any liquids on it but I have had crumbs from food such as cookies or bread crumbs end up between the keys. There is no damage when using the keys, other than it feels like a couple keys get stuck, possibly from things being underneath them.

    Have you tried turning your laptop upside down, and then giving it a really good shake. Try doing this several times plus a good blast of air in between each shake. The only other alternative would be to dissasemble the laptop (which i would highly advise you "NOT" to do unless you really know what your doing). But iv'e always found the Blast, Invert and Shake method the best way to dislodge those cookie crumbs. Though using your laptop as a dinner plate is never a good thing to do in the first place ;).
