Question about HP Pavilion dv9000z Notebook
Hi, a friend spilt a smoothie on my keyboard, now when I try to turn on my computer it beeps ( like a key is stuck ) and won't let me in. Do I need to replace the keyboard or is the problem more serious then that. Please help, Thank You
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.
