You should also be able to prise the keys of by careful use of a flat-bladed screwdriver so that you can wash them.

thanks Dwarf the keys pooped off easily and then you can see the keyboard is designed in such a way that if anything is spilled then theres a good chance it wont actually get inside the board, thankfully, so just cleaning the keys has worked a treat. thanks

Yesterday sucked. On Friday, I had two random BSODs. On Saturday, I figured I'd try to fix the problem. Based on my reading here, it seemed that I should check and update my device drivers. I ran into a major issue with ATI Catalyst. Basically, it got wedged - could not uninstall the old or...
