    ouch! my son pulled 20 keys off my laptop last week. I just had the teckie chick out to replace it with a new one we ordered online. it cost me 100 to replace the keyboard (got it off ebay) and 50 for her to install it. It seemed easy enough, i am just a reject when it comes to computer stuff so i figured i'd let the teckie chick deal with it.

    Depending on the brand of laptop, you can actually buy a replacement keyboard for it. Had to do it when I was in Thailand, and it was quite easy, and very cheap over there. Not sure of the cost over here.

    Well...some keyboards have keys that you can pop off without it being a danger to the acutal computer (ie. not being able to redo what you undid). Pop off the keys...be sure to note where they all go...and clean the base with a damp washcloth. Then push the keys back in the holes they came from! You should ask a tech place like Best Buy or Office Depot about your model of computer to make sure it's okay to pop off the keys.
