1) DON'T TURN IT ON, unplug it and remove the battery. then WAIT

If it's already dead, like went out when the cola was spilled, you can still get all your information out of it if you take it someplace and have them remove the hard drive and get the data out of it.

It's much better to have a sticky keyboard than to have a dead computer, so let it dry completely before trying to remove it.

The removal process might be a bit difficult if it got down below the keyboard.

Click on this Link to go to a web page that will walk you through the removal of the keyboard, hard drive and other components. The idea is to remove all power from the computer, then remove components and wipe them off. There are some non-conductive cleaners out there. HERE's ONE

Even if your computer is dead, you can remove the hard drive, using the instructions above and then put the drive into an external enclosure like THIS ONE. Then plug the hard drive into another computer to get your data off it.

If the computer wasn't on and you don't know for sure that it's dead, i'd remove the battery and unplug it and let it sit for a couple days so the liquid dries and then take it to a repair shop.

Good luck and write back if you need more help.

As for cleaning a laptop computer keybord, I would use a can for compressed air, q-tips, and soapy water. I would be careful about getting the laptop too wet as water can seep into the computer. Hope this helps!!

Hello,

You would definitely need to spend little money. Take the laptop to a nearby laptop repairer and explain to him what you have just wrote down here. He would know better. But you would not spend lots of money. He just needs to clean it off.

Best regards

Letters 't,s,d, f" in the key board are not working


I've seen this problem when the keyboard has had liquid spilt into it, Coca-Cola is the worst. I've been able to take some toshiba keyboards apart but it can be fiddly, the circuitry is on 2 transparent flexible circuit boards, with an extra layer between with holes in, when you press a key the top and bottom layers touch through the hole- making the connection. If you can get the keyboard out/apart it might be possible to separate the layers and clean the flexible boards with spit ( yes, spit can break down drink spills and not harm the circuit) but this will invalidate the warranty.. New keyboard required!
