My inspiron mini 1018 notebook's keyboard is not working properly. The left shift key appears to be stuck and I really having a hard time using the whole keyboard. I remember having spilled a few drops...

When water spills into a notebook, you should fully disassemble the notebook & thoroughly inspect its inside. Look for any traces of liquid on the circuit boards & on other components. On circuit boards, liquid damage appears in the form of whitish traces. These needs to be wiped off. This can be done using a tooth brush moistened with few drops of hand sanitizer liquid.
Check all internal connectors & make sure that no liquid seeped into them. Dry them if needed.
When you are done, re-assemble back the notebook.
If the liquid fell on the keyboard & you found out that the keyboard is no longer working, then you might have to replace the keyboard.

Shift key not working although i've installed 109keyboard drivers

Do you mean both Shift keys or only one of them? There are two shift keys and they should work even if you don't install any drivers once the Windows (or any operating system) is installed. It should even work with the Bios so that you can access the Bios Settings etc...

Get an external USB keyboard and see if it works or not, if it doesn't then there's problem with your machine, means keyboard controller or on the motherboard.
If only one of the keys is working, I would suspect some faulty with the key which doesn't work, in that case, you can try cleaning after removing the button from the socket. Press and Hold down the key while you push it left to right or vise versa, it'll pop out. But if you don't have idea, I would recommend to let someone done it for you otherwise you may have damage the button or you may be having difficulty re-seating it. Removing is easier, but re-seating is sometimes a problem.
Let me know if you need further help.

Good Luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Left shift key is loose

The keys on laptops are easy to break. Many times they become loose or broken during cleaning or even though normal wear if the computer is used a lot.

If everything appears to be intact simply align the button directly over the area and apply a light, even pressure. This should snap it back into place. If you aren't comfortable doing this contact your local computer repair shop and have them take a look at it. Hope this helps!
