Sticky keyboard I had spilled wine on my keyboard. Tried to wipe it up as best I could. The computer still works fine. The only problem I have is it seem like some of the keys get stuck easily until after I type for awhile. Is there any way to really clean under the keys? The computer is an Acer - Aspire 5100 laptop

You can carefully take off the keys and pop them back on. Use alcohol to wipe up any stickiness.

Thats just it they dont work......i cleaned a sticky / ? key, now these keys wont work


It is near impossible to clean sticky keys, especially when you have spill sticky liquid on the keyboard.
The best solution is to replace the keyboard.
You can get a replacement keyboard from one of these WEB sites.

Spilled coke on my keyboard, how do we clean it


Hi

Thank you for your query

Best thing would be to get a damp cloth and simply wipe over the keyboard when the laptop is switched off, this will remove the stickyness.

Please ensure when wiping that no water travels into the keyboard which may cause you problems

Only about 6 keys are working on my lenovo laptop, it had a little wine spilled on it, i have removed it and soaked it etc but still only the same 6 keys work...does it need replacing or is it some other...


More than likely it needs replacing.
Keyboards tend be fairly delicate and if you've already tried rinsing and drying it your best best is to try replacing it.

Wine spilled on keyboard


You have to open up the laptop and remove the keyboard and dry it.

Also clean other parts properly where the wine has reached.

Very short freezes constantly


There was more damage than just the keyboard, your fault appears intermitten and possibly some connectors and sockets are not making good electrical contact. You need to dismantle the laptop completely to inspect and clean what ever you can with distilled water and let it dry throughly. It still may not work because there may be some electrical damage to some chips and components, especially if the laptop was running at the time of the wine spill.

There is not much help I can offer you except to advise you to buy another laptop, and if the hard drive in the old laptop is OK then buy a USB hard drive case and insert the laptop hard drive in this case and use it as an external USB hard drive. You need to delete all the old system files etc. to maxmise the hard disk space.

Hi Lizardo -

The best bet for resolving this problem would be to replace the keyboard. The part can be ordered easily on the internet. It's a replaceable part that's very simple to do.

Take care,

I'll start by telling you that most of the time keyboards don't recover from a spill. With that said, clean it by using a 50/50 rubbing alcohol in a spray bottle. Remove the keyboard from the machine, and spray the alcohol into the keyboard generously. Shake out the excess or blow it out with air, then use paper towels to daub up the rest. Repeat this process two or three times, then let the keyboard dry for a good 24 hours. While you have the keyboard off check for any juice or sticky areas in the machine, and clean them with the alcohol and Q-tips. Let this dry well also. After drying put the keyboard back on and try it. If you notice any sticky keys after using it for a while, then take the sticky keys off and clean them individually with the alcohol and Q-tips.

Thinkpad T21 keeps turning itself off


You're going to have to open the machine up, which isn't something I recommend for a novice. It's possible the fan has become sticky and isn't turning properly, so the thermostat is shutting the system down. It's also possible there is a short somewhere. Does the keyboard work properly? Is it sticky? Was it red or white wine? (it could make a difference, but it doesn't) Good luck
