I don’t need to know – [??]

(1) – For Laptop = http://www.quepublis...about/legal.asp

Legal Info - http://www.quepublis...about/legal.asp

(2) – For Desktop = Cleaning Keyboards -
http://www.totse.com...y/cleankey.html

To clean the keyboard, turn off the PC and place the keyboard in you lap. Remove each key by prying it STRAIGHT UP with a penknife of small screwdriver until it pops off. Check each key for any gummy or sticky matter, placing the dirty keys in a pile to be cleaned with soap and water. DO NOT REMOVE THE SPACE BAR!!! If you do, youll find it is almost impossible to replace properly. After removing the keys, take a low- pressure air hose (or hair dryer) and blow a stream of air down into the key tubes.



You will need to practice reassembling the space bar spring before you try to put the unit back together. To do this, remove the spacebar tubes from the tube holder. Remove the toggle and place it in a safe place. Note the wire running the full length of the space bar tube assembly. This wire is the spring that keeps the spacebar from tilting to one side during use. When the spacebar is inserted into the tube assembly this wire MUST fit into the slots in the "legs" on each end of the spacebar. Try it a few times before you plan to reassemble the keyboard.

I got it back on.
I removed the buttons on the row above the space button.
Then I tied a steelwire around the space button, so the metal lever didn't come off at any point.
Then I put the space button back in, and used a my fingers to put the lewer into the "slots" on the keyboard. (It always fell of without the metal wire)
