Dry it with a Blower , clean with a wet Soap cloth gently and then use Vaccum cleaner. If it not works, then press all keys with both Hands, and then reboot PC.

Well, think about your cell phones.  Mix electronics with any liquid and they are usually toast. Remove the battery immediately and dry thoroughly. 
The things that I have heard about that may occasionally work... 

  • Use blow dryer on low heat.  
  • Put in a ziploc bag (or any plastic) and put in the sun.  The heat will pull the moisture out and condense on inside of the bag.  
  • I knew someone who put it in an oven on very low heat to allow it to evaporate very slowly.  Salt water is usually the kiss of death because of the resulting corrosion. 
Try these at your own risk. The sooner you do this after it is wet the better your chances it may work.  
Lastly, if you had an inexpensive keyboard OR laptop vinyl cover, your computer would withstand the spill.  If you are going to eat and drink around your laptop, it is so important to protect your investment with a computer keyboard cover (keyskin) and keep it safe from spills and germs. These keyskins hold up even with bleach and germicides used regularly.  They are made in the USA but ship internationally.   Visit the website http://www.keyskincover.com/ for more information on keyskin covers. Discounts are available.

I have a toshiba satellite A205-S500 I am looking for a replacement black keyboard and I believe the LCD Screen needs to be replaced where can I buy these two parts and can I install them myself.


You are looking at about $200 for keyboard and LCD, and you could buy them from here http://www.sparepartswarehouse.com/Toshiba,Satellite,A205,PSAE3U-07Y023,Laptop,LCDs-Displays.aspx
As for installing them yourself, it's pretty easy if you're handy with a screwdriver. Have a look here for a video guide:

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.

Spilled juice on Toshiba Laptop keyboard; now keys do not type at all! is there a way to salvage it without having to buy new replacement


Dear v1ndic8d,

Spilling juice on your laptop is not always the end of your laptop. The best you thing you can do is to order a new keyboard. Go to eBay and enter the model of your laptop plus the word "keyboard" and purchase a new one. Make sure you read the description and the language, etc. Replacing the keyboard itself is not that complicated either. You may very well be able to do it yourself. Return to this site when ready and we'll help you replace it.

Good luck.

Toshiba Equium M70 Trouble with keyboard only two keys dont work with the shift key


The first thing I would try is buy a can of compressed air and give your keyboard a good cleaning. There may be stuff under the keys that are letting them work. Was there any liquid spilled on the keyboard?
