How do I fix sticky keys on netbook?


Physically sticky keys because you spilled something on them or sticky keys keyboard shortcuts?
The first you don't really unless you want to dismantle the keyboard and clean the entire thing (do-able but it would take you a long time and you risk breaking the pieces under each key) I would just buy a new keyboard on ebay for $15-30 and have someone replace it.
Second, keyboard short cuts you can disable under Control Panel > Ease of Use > "Make the keyboard easier to use" and uncheck sticky keys.

Comment if you need more assistance and please rate the solution if you found it useful.
Thanks,
Justin

How do I take off teh keyboard digits to clean underneath - after spilling melted chocolate on some keys they are stiff and sticky.


  1. Remove the old keyboard key by putting the tip of your fingernail underneath the top right of the key you want to clean.

  2. Lift the key upward to remove the key.

  3. Push the hinge into place on the keyboard, and put the rubber spring piece into place.
  4. Align the cleaned key on the keyboard so that it is in the correct place.
  5. Push the key firmly in place, and move it slightly around until you hear a clicking sound.

Tea spilt on Laptop


If you can put up with the sticky keys and they still work then it is OK.
Otherwise you need to replace the keyboard.

Spilled coke on the touchpad and keyboard of Acer Aspire 5920


Not so sure on the touch pad, but the keyboard is easy to remove. Make sure the laptop is switched off first.
There are a series of little clips holding the keyboard on. Look along the top above the F keys you will see 3 or 4 little clips, push each of them in and up (away from the keyboard) using something thin and blunt so as not to cause any damage.
There will also be some little clips each side of the keyboard, these do not push in, you need to manoeuvre the keyboard past these.
Lift the keyboard from the top as it slots into some grooves at the bottom. There will be a ribbon cable connecting it to your laptop, this is easily undone and the keyboard is off.

4 keyboard keys aren't functioning


Chances are there is a physical problem with the keyboard. Are the keys sticky or do they press normally and still not work? If the keys are sticky when you push them you can remove the keyboard and keys and try to clean the keys with rubbing alcohol. Chances are the keyboard is not defective and the link below will help you take care of that problem. If you need any further help let me know.

I am including a link to a new keyboard for your model Laptop. They are fairly reasonable condidering they are laptop keyboards.

You can carefully take off the keys and pop them back on. Use alcohol to wipe up any stickiness.

I'll start by telling you that most of the time keyboards don't recover from a spill. With that said, clean it by using a 50/50 rubbing alcohol in a spray bottle. Remove the keyboard from the machine, and spray the alcohol into the keyboard generously. Shake out the excess or blow it out with air, then use paper towels to daub up the rest. Repeat this process two or three times, then let the keyboard dry for a good 24 hours. While you have the keyboard off check for any juice or sticky areas in the machine, and clean them with the alcohol and Q-tips. Let this dry well also. After drying put the keyboard back on and try it. If you notice any sticky keys after using it for a while, then take the sticky keys off and clean them individually with the alcohol and Q-tips.

Pop the enter key off (be gentle), then take a Q-tip with alcohol (rubbing not drinking) and clean the connector and the rubber riser. If the problem persists, the you will have to replace the keyboard.

Acer Aspire 5610 - one key does not work


Laptop keyboard are semi-sealed circuit boards. This means that liquid can get into the contacts and can not be cleaned. Depending on how much liquid was spilled on the keyboard chances are that the liquid has seeped around the edges of the keyboard and down onto the mainboard of the laptop. My first suggestion would be to keep the laptop turned off until you can remove the keyboard and check for liquid damage to the mainboard. If there is no damage to the mainboard I would suggest buying a new keyboard before turning the computer back on as any shorts caused by the liquid damage on the keyboard can cause damage to the keyboard controller circuit on the mainboard.
