laptop keyboard key stuck


Hey,
I don't know if this is the right forum for this post or not, but I didn't want to post it somewhere where it wasn't supposed to go. Anyway, this morning I have noticed that the "G" key on my laptop seems to be "jammed" in the sense that there could be something underneath it preventing it from being pushed. Is there anyway to knock what ever that is out or take up the key to get the peace out?

Thanks,
Derek

Keys will pry up if you work at them with a screwdriver.

A friend of mine spilt milk on his laptop so he dutifully pried up the keys to clean it out. Needless to say his companies tech guy said that caused more damage than the milk.

So... IMHO, I wouldn't pry the keys off on a laptop, check with the manufacturer first.

*EDIT*

Maybe it's just the way he did it, because:
I found a guide here
but it could depend on the laptop so check here
