    I use a small flat screwdriver and pry gently.

    Thanks!!!!!! It popped right up. At first I thought it was caps lock, but it won't. I guess the kitty kitty took a prance across the desk and got it stuck.

    Sounds like your keyboard could use a good scrub. Grab some rubbing alcohol and some cotton swabs, and get to work. [​IMG] That's a safe way to clean your keyboard. Works great, too.

    I usually just keep pushing it till it gets unstuck, or forever broken. [​IMG]

    If repeated pushing doesnt work, PUSH HARDER.. [​IMG]

    I'll work on that. I did get the little compressed air thing and cleaned out the dust. I love those things. If anyone knows what I'm talking about, the little can with the red straw to clean electronics, it pushed dust out from under the keys. I haven't cleaned it since I bought it from the pawn shop, no surprise it is sticking lol
