    Dumb question Im sure. Im computer illiterate Ive come to realize after reading how smart everyone else is. Anyhow, my computer keyboard is stuck. I think there is just so much dust and gunk in there. Ive never cleaned it in like forever. and Ive never really given it a good cleaning. Now, I know some people take the computer keyboard apart... however Im not even going to attempt that. I bought a can of dust off. Can someone just tell me how to use it correctly... thanksss guys!

    Hello, singerash.

    I recommend that you do the following, outside, when the weather is comfortable and no chance of you being mugged [ no offense to Philadelphia ].

    Turn off the computer.

    Draw a diagram as to how your keyboard connects to your computer.

    I do NOT recommend dis-assembling your keyboard.

    Position the tube / straw that connects to the can is away from you.

    Put the nozzle end 1" to 2" from the keyboard. Don't put the nozzle beneath a key, because that might pop off a key.

    Press the nozzle on the can.

    OR, buy a new keyboard. Then, dis-assemble your old keyboard to look under the hood.
