So apparently when youre watching a DVD and drinking gatorade, and you drop the gatorade, it will find a way to defy gravity and land 3 feet above and to the side in order to land on your laptops keyboard.

So, this Dell Inspiron 9100 has a stickey space bar (its pretty bad...it almost feels like it doesnt move unless you directly press down on it).

Is there anyway to get under the keys to clean in there?

I kind of dug around a little but none of the obvious screws seem to do anything...

I need to know ASAP, thanks.

Only sure fire way will involve (most likely) a small torx screwdriver and several hours of warrenty voiding dismantling and reassembling of the laptop. If you choose this path, I'm not to be held responsible for any screwups that occur, such as random screws that appear after reassembly when you're certain you put everyone of them back where it goes :)

Are the keys removable?

On my laptop you can remove the keys to clean underneath them by pulling up on both sides of the key at the same time. On my friend's laptop you pull up on the top part of the key at a 45 degree angle and they pop right off.

I'm kind of afraid they are just glued to something...

But I cant really check now, I moved out and it's a 3 hour drive to my parents house.
