Hi, am wondering if there is a way to get the keys off the board so as to clean underneath, in the buttons, etc. some of my keys have gotten spongy and/or unresponsive, like there may be something lodged there, and I do have spiders and ants crawling around. Is there a video I could watch to show me how to clean up?

Those keycaps are not removable.  I use a small paperclip wrapped with a non-dust wipe, bent at right angle to get underneath.  A little water will help to get the toughest spots clean.

um, sorry to disillusion you, but I have been digging around on the web and come across www.laptopkey.com  which shows every which key, their pins and hinges and sizes and tell you both how to remove the key cap, but also how to replace them

Check them out. you will be prompted to look for your model, make etc, and then you can click on the info and it tells you what to do

So, I guess I answered my own query, but the info is here, now, for anyone to view

The expertise of the average user will result in a broken keyboard.  Better to replace it than play delicate games with little plastic pieces and clips.  I can spend an hour cleaning a keyboard but it will cost more for labor.  Severe environments can call for overlays which will even help the average user who eats and drinks in front of the machine.
