Unless you have the patience and know-how to tear it apart and clean it all up I would say you would save a lot of money on aspirin by getting a new one. Almost every one I've seen taken apart for something like this ends up with loose keycovers which sometimes jam against each other and do not allow the key to actually strike the sensor so spell-checker is a constant companion with them.

I spilled milk on my keyboard and now the keys are all messed up when I type, and pressing any button tends to make my computer shut down or sleep. For example, pressing "R" results in...


Well if you spilled milk on it there is only one thing to do: take apart, wash, wait for it dry, and hope the best.
Find all the screws on the bottom (some might be under stickers or the rubber pads), unscrew them all, and take apart the case. Iside you should find a small panel and a double layered foilage thingy, with printed tracks on it. Remove the small panel and wash everything else with warm tap water. Dry it with a towel and wait for it to dry completely. Then put back together and try it out.
There's not much you can loose this way, if this doesn't work you'll have to buy a new keyboard anyway.
Good luck!

My backspace key does not work.my laptop is Dell Inspiron 640m. Thank you.


Your backspace does not work.... well could be many reasons, but if its the key itself, you can replace just the dell laptop key, if you spilled something then you will need a new keyboard, we really need more info. Good luck!

I spilled water on my MS wireless multimedia keyboard 1.1. Dried it out. A few of the keys don't work. Is there a fix?


This depends on how good you are at opening your keyboard. Inside the keyboard is a thin plastic film that has contacts for the keyboard to make contact with. They are very sensitive to water. If you can take the keyboard apart carefully and can get to the plastic file and make sure its dry. (which i am guess its still got water in it cause they usually do) Then you can save your keyboard. Other wise sorry buy another one. The way i look at it is you are probabley going to be buying a new one anways what have you got to lose :)
I had the same issuse i got all keys working again except my f3 button. and i use it all the time so i adventually had to buy another keyboard. However if you like to take things apart :) now is a good time.
Hope this helps thanks
Steven.

Some keys of my keyboard doesnt work..(5,6,r,t,f,g,v)..


If they type something else instead then you need to hit the scroll lock key to release the keys. If nothing comes from typing the keys then you need a new keyboard. Best source is EBay if it is a laptop.

The keys have clogged up and all the keys dont work becouse water has gone iside any solutions


Replacement.

That is the ONLY solution for keyboards that have ANY kind of liquid spilled into them.

I can replace the keyboard and check the inside of the computer for additional damage that may have occurred because of the spill.

Spilled wine in keyboard


it really depends, on the logitech stuff they have the accidental spill holes in the bottom so liquid doesn't pool but there is a possibility that it could have saturated the board and ruinied the internals, just try to dry it out as best you can and hope for the best

My return key is not functioning on my apple keyboard.


Buy a new keyboard. They are cheap. One possible solution is to allow the keyboard to thoroughly dry and try it. You can pry up the key and look and see if it needs to be dusted out with some air, or cleaned of whatever was spilled on it. Perhaps alcohol on a Qtip on the moving parts. Not sure what "something" splashed on it. Root beer? Water? Big difference. I would visually inspect, try to dust, then clean with alcohol. Let it dry thoroughly and give it a shot. Short course, buy a new monitor. Good luck.
