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.

Tip

HOw to Clean your keyobard effectively


Keyboard cleaningIf you're trying to clean a laptop keyboard see document CH000780 for additional help and information. All of the below information applies to standard desktop computer keyboards.
Why? Dirt, dust and hair can build up causing the keyboard to not function properly.
Procedure: Many people clean the keyboard by turning it upside down and shaking. A more effective method is to use compressed air. Compressed air is pressurized air contained in a can with a very long nozzle. Simply aim the air between the keys and blow away all of the dust and debris that has gathered there. A vacuum cleaner can also be used, but make sure the keyboard doesn't have loose "pop off" keys that could possibly be sucked up by the vacuum.
Why? If the keyboard has anything spilt into it (ie: pop, cola, Pepsi, Coke, beer, wine, coffee, milk, etc.), not taking the proper steps can cause the keyboard to be destroyed.
Procedure: Below are a few recommendations to help prevent a keyboard from becoming bad once a substance has been spilt within it.
If anything is spilt onto the keyboard turn the computer off immediately. Once the computer is turned off, quickly flip the keyboard over helping to prevent the substance from penetrating circuits. While the keyboard is upside down, shake the keyboard over a surface you do not mind getting wet or that can be cleaned up later. While still upside down, use a cloth to help clean out what can be reached. After you you have cleaned the keyboard to the best of your ability leave the keyboard upside down for at least one night allowing it to dry.
If a keyboard does not work after trying it again later it is recommended that it be replaced. If the keyboard works but some of the keys are sticky or cannot be pressed in you can attempt to do additional cleaning in attempt to resolve the issue. Unfortunately many times when any sticky substance such as a non-diet pop is spilt directly onto the keyboard it's usually a loss unless you plan on spending dozens of hours attempting to clean each key.
Why? A keyboard that is used by multiple people, such as students or different employees, may need to be disinfected to help the spread of germs.
Procedure: Turn off the computer. Spray a disinfectant onto a cloth or damp a cloth with alcohol and rub each of the keys on the keyboard. As mentioned in our general cleaning tips, never spray any type of liquid onto the keyboard.

Power light on and beeping and no picture acer aspire t180


If your computer beeps when you turn it on you have a problem with your power supply, system board, graphics/video card or keyboard.
Reboot your system with out the keyboard if it no longer beeps your problem is a couple of stuck keys on the keyboard.
If the beeping continues remove your graphics card and reboot your system.
If your pc still beeps the it is either your power supply or the system board.

My laptop constantly beeps and will not recognise the keyboard


One of two things... bad or missing memory will cause beeping, but I assume if you know the keyboard is not responding then the PC has booted up. The other thing to check is a stuck key. Look and see if there is one key that appears to be depressed. If that does not reveal the bad key try rubbing your hand across the keyboard, pressing down on the keys as you move your hand across. As a last resort you might try tapping every key several times to release the stuck key.

Hi there

An error with the keyboard can be caused by any of the below possibilities.
  1. Keyboard is not connected properly.
  2. Stuck key
  3. Bad keyboard
  4. Bad PS/2 or AT port
Solution:Keyboard is not connected properly
Verify that the keyboard is connected properly to the computer by turning off your computer and then disconnecting and reconnecting the keyboard to the computer.


Stuck key


Ensure that there are no stuck keys on the keyboard. If all keys appear to be ok and you have a standard desktop computer with keyboard, attempt to turn keyboard over and gently hit the back of the keyboard to loosen any dirt or hair that may be stuck in the keyboard.


Bad keyboard

Try another keyboard on the computer to verify that the keyboard has not gone bad.
Bad PS/2 or AT port
If all of the above solutions are not able to resolve your issue it is likely that the port on the back of the computer may be bad and the motherboard or I/O board may need to be replaced.

Good luck and kind regards

Keyboard problem with an Asus Pro Series 31: Running Vista Premium


Hey,
According to me one of his keys is function keys (like : Fn,Ctrl,alt,shift) is stuck or gets stuck now and again , so whenever in msword u try and type nething its actually getting pressed ctrl + something, and hence weird functions keep on popping.
This generally happens either when he has spilt milk/water ne other liquid onto the keyboard, Solution to this would have to replacement of keyboards(Some keyboards are designed in such a way that liquid can be removed from then but i don't really know how).
Another reason would be over/improper use of the keyboard and particularly those keys causing them to get stuck
solution in such a case would be to remove the particular key and try cleaning it.
This problem is pretty common in laptops all you can do i use more carefully...i dont think there is any fool proof solution.
Cheers

N, H, T and Backspace keys suddenly not working.


You can try blowing it out with compressed air, but you will probably need to remove the keyboard to make sure nothing was spilled or stuck in there. You should be able to remove the keyboard by removing the battery, then removing the keyboard securing strip, and then you should be able to take a screwdriver and pry the keyboard up and out.
