Take it apart and clean it.

There is one screw hidden behind the sticker on back.

The rest are quite visible.

Though it is helpfull to have another keyboard available so you know where all the keys go when you put it back together.

Set of allen wrenches (small) and phillips screwdrivers (small).

I just used one of the bigger assorted jewelers screwdriver sets.

You'll notice that the sticker must be pulled back (you can feel the hole) to get the hidden screw and also keys on the keyboard must come off (makes it easier to clean under the keys -- but you should be able to see where keyboard is screwed into the back panel).

Other than that you should be able to see where the screws are located.
