thanx for posting gecko, u really contributed to the topic.


ive seen my friend put it in the dishwasher b4 without any soap, then let it dry for 2 days and it werked. not kidding, ive heard it b4 and ive seen it werk.
also try using a dust cleaner / compressed air, whatever u wanna call it



these r 2 cheap sites u could try, or go to any computer store and ask for compressed air.

try getting an exacto knife, or pocket knife, picking it out, and cleaning it and the interface on the keyboard.
