You can also get spray cans of contact cleaner because they displace moisture and leave zero residue and spray the area down with this and leave it for about 1 hour

You can dunk it in rice to help wick away moisture. Some people have said to use an oven especially with small portable electronics and DO NOT. A small heater with some kind of shield in front works great so its not to intense.

Re: damaged laptop's keyboard

This is going to sound stupid, but open your laptop and put it in a tub that has sides that are at least 3-4 inches above the top of the keyboard and fill with rice. The rice will draw the moisture out... Also works for cellphones that have been dropped in water! (Or in my case, gone through the washer....)

How to take apart my h-15 laptop

Do not like your chances of success in your endeavours. Was it switched on when you spilled the liquid in to the keyboard as damage of the short circuiting type is a real possibility.
Usually you need a service manual as every laptop if different in its way of disassembly. Suggest taking somewhere to be repaired but chances of no serious damage are low.
9 years ago I had a daughter poor water over a laptop that had been purchased one week earlier. The guy at the shop advised me it would just need to dry out and after it was dried out the keyboard did not work properly and then the laptop stopped working altogether.

Remove the battery from the laptop
leave in a dry room on its side and leave overnight.
let the water drain out and dry out then try switching it on.
if you get lot of beeping then the keyboard has failed (which can be replaced.)

If you get no lights or sound coming from your laptop hen it probably has died

I can't switch on the laptop because water spilled

Flip it upside down and remove the main battery, leave in that position to drain water out as much as possible. Take it to a computer technician quickly as possible, chances are it will need a new keyboard, also he will need to check the motherboard under the keyboard for water damage.

One single key not working, please advise qwerty (does not work)iop

Have you the right regional keyboard? Check your settings in control panel> regional and language settings. Also check system> hardware> device manager while your there to ensure you have the right driver installed.
If both are OK then it could be damaged keyboard for which you can plug in another keyboard and use that or use keytweak to remap your keyboard as it's not worth the money to replace the keyboard for one key.

Water was poured on the keyboard. Battery was removed immediately and wiped dry as was the keyboard. Keyboard was placed under the fan upside down for approximately 2hrs after which battery was replaced...

First thing is to not try powering the laptop on after the water fell on it. Next, you should remove the battery off the laptop immediately. When this is done, you should fully disassemble the laptop & thoroughly inspect its inside. Look for any traces of water on the circuit boards & on other components. On circuit boards, water damage appears in the form of whitish traces. These needs to be wiped off. This can be done using a tooth brush moistened with few drops of hand sanitizer liquid.
Check all internal connectors & make sure that no water seeped into them. Dry them if needed.
When you are done, re-assemble back the laptop.
If the water fell on the keyboard & you found out that the keyboard is no longer working, then you will have to replace the keyboard.
