Hi Linda,

If all else fails you can get some compressed air cans at any office supply place and blow the particles out. In all cases make sure that the laptop is off before you try most remedies.
Hi Linda - keys stick over time because dust, crumbs, etc. get under them and cause them to stick.
\015\012
\015\012Many times you can just repeatedly hit the sticking key a dozen or so times and restore it to its original status. Actually what u r doing is pulverizing the dust or crumbs into micro pieces..
\015\012
\015\012Also try carefully tipping the open laptop upside down on a piece of newspaper or bed sheet and tapping it as if u were burping a baby.

\015\012Try these things and let me know. If I don't hear back cause it is resolved, kindly score my answer as a fix ya! thanks.
