This is important: What kind of smoothie? I like banana/mango/strawberry, but I also LOVE watermelon/strawberry. Yogurt or no?

FOR GOD'S SAKE, TAKE THE KEYBOARD OUT OF THE COMPUTER, TURN THE COMPUTER OVER IMMEDIATELY AND UNPLUG IT. REMOVE THE BATTERY AND THEN FIGURE OUT WHAT TO DO NEXT.

This website will show you how to remove the keybaord. You can remove it, wash it in water or the dishwasher, dry it in front of a fan for at least a day and then replace it. I'd also recommend, after washing it, dousing (like with a lot) it with isopropyl alcohol, which will get the water out of the little cracks. After you remove the keyboard, check to see if any yogurt/strawberry/mango/banana goodness got into the computer.

Write back after you get this done if you need more help. Remember DRY IT THOROUGHLY BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO REPLACE the keyboard.

Hp pavilion dv9000 blue lights on won`t boot stuck just cli


Sounds like the harddrive went bad.
Some people call it the click of death.
Put the laptop to your ear near the harddrive and you will hear the clicking coming from there.
Good news is that it's easy enough to change the harddrive.
Bad news is you lose all your data to this point.
I hope this helps and i'm sorry that happend to you.

Viewsonic Tablet PC keyboard issue.


Try reseating the cable that connects the keyboard first.

If that doesnt help there may be liquid around the connector and it needs to be cleaned off to keep the circuit from shorting out. You will need to find someone with the appropriate chemicals and may have to take the laptop further apart to clean it all up.

This is why when anyone gets a liquid spill i recommend getting it torn down right away and cleaned up, as it can damage things you cant even see. If the liquid has been in there too long it may not be repairable.

Good luck!
