I did the same thing. Here's what I did:
Took whole thing apart. Cleaned any coffee with q-tips dipped in water / paper towels. Removed the keyboard. Ran it through the dishwasher with no soap in it and heated dryer off of course.
I let it dry for a day and was bummed that now the whole keyboard stopped working. Well then 4 days later to my surprise / delight.. the whole thing started working again. New keyboards on ebay were also very reasonable. But mine still works perfectly after the dishwasher cleaning.

When i type f it searches, when i type m it minimize the application, when i type L it loguot...my laptop is acer aspire


The Ctrl key got stuck, either mechanically or electrically (liquid spilled?).
Sometimes it helps to hit the stuck key (actually two, left and right) numerous times, and restart the computer.

Spilled coffee on the keyboard and now only some keys are working, some are not, and some are stuck. How do I get the keyboard off?


Open the laptop, pry up the right hand edge of the strip above the keyboard and lift it slowly working from right to left so it snaps out of the base unit. You will then see 2 screws on above F5 and the other above F10, remove these screws and lift keyboard out far enough to detach the ribbon cable underneath.

Spilled Coffee on HP Laptop--miraculously it works with errors


It depends on how damaged the keyboard is. Electronics get very touchy about such things. If you let it dry it may work, but there may be some circuitry damage. You may need to seek professional repair if the board doesn't start working. Also, you could get a new keyboard for it and install it yourself. Until you do this go get a desktop keyboard and that should get you by. Keep an eye out for other problems, the coffee may have gone deeper into the laptop and may have gotten onto the motherboard. Your files should not be in danger anymore, because it is somewhat hard for liquid to get into a hard drive (unless it causes a surge).

Sounds like your number lock maybe be on. It could also have a shortcut function option that is on. If not, have you spilled anything on it lately?

HPG60 Laptop - coffee spill - mouse not working


well this is a common thing but most likely the motherboard was shorted out and causing glitching. I would take it to a tech to see if there is anything recoverable in there

Due to sugary spill, 4 keys not working on keyboard


Hello,

Simply stated, yes.

If you plan to do that, in the meantime you could also run the keyboard under a warm shower for a new minutes and then hang it out to dry in the sun. I'm not kidding. It will probably, that is probably, work just fine after that so long as all the water has dried and drained out and its not an IBM mechanical keyboard.

Regards,

Acer Aspire 5610 - one key does not work


Laptop keyboard are semi-sealed circuit boards. This means that liquid can get into the contacts and can not be cleaned. Depending on how much liquid was spilled on the keyboard chances are that the liquid has seeped around the edges of the keyboard and down onto the mainboard of the laptop. My first suggestion would be to keep the laptop turned off until you can remove the keyboard and check for liquid damage to the mainboard. If there is no damage to the mainboard I would suggest buying a new keyboard before turning the computer back on as any shorts caused by the liquid damage on the keyboard can cause damage to the keyboard controller circuit on the mainboard.
