I guess all you can do is try dry the water by tipping the laptop upside down (Keyboard face down) and also use a hairdryer or something hot to try and dry it. Dont overheat it!!!

    There's not much you can do except maybe pull off the key and examine the inside or else you will have to get a replacement keyboard.

    About Outlook Express, i never use it because its quite old. If your using a server designed for your work specifically, you can use Windows Live Mail which replaced Outlook Express or Thunderbird which is a really good piece of Email software. It will not support Yahoo or MSN/Live/Hotmail.
    Windows live mail will accept all except Yahoo because you need to pay.
    These two pieces of software both include import feature so it automatically copies your current settings and mail to your new software environment.
    Windows Live Mail:http://get.live.com/wlmail/overview
    Thunderbird:http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/thunderbird...

    If you do intend to fix Outlook Express could you please tell me did this happen after the incident of spilling water. What is it asking you to save? Can you view the email after it has saved by finding where you saved it and open it?

Delete Key Not Working


There's a couple of things you could try. First, try removing the key using this method: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mpwzUlJtVso make sure you turn the laptop off first.
Then clean underneath it with a q-tip and rubbing alcohol. Let it dry and replace the key. If that doesn't work, you may need a new keyboard. You can purchase and replace it yourself if you're up to it. Search iFixit.com for the tutorial on how to replace the keyboard for your specific model.

I spilt milk on my samsung laptop I shut the power off and wondering what is the best way to dry it


Most likely when the laptop dries out the milk residue will stop the keyboard keys from working properly. Depending upon how much milk has been spilt the milk may have penetrated to the motherboard and caused more damage.
Place the laptop in a warm area for several days.
If the laptop boots up properly but the some of keyboard keys don't work then a replacement keyboard may fix your problem.
Keyboard replacement maybe available from this WEB site.

My son has spilt coke on the laptop 1 key not working O


If you spill drinks on a keyboard, something is bound to break, and apparantly only the O key did... The only way to fix it is to get a new keyboard, I'm sorry. I hope this helps, Yannick.
