I have an Acer Aspire which I had spilled pop on. The key pads press down fine, but it's like the computer won't recognize them. Nothing shows when they are press. can I remove the keypad or how *** i do this fix myself?/ thanks so very much.
More than likely the pop has gotten inside your unit. you would have to open the unit, disconnect your keyboard, clean the leads and connectors to the keyboard. If the unit was on when this happened the mb may have shorted in which you would need a new kb.

YEP! Walk away from the laptop. You killed it! And it will be costly to fix!
Estimate that at least a keyboard, and probably a motherboard will have to be replaced. That is almost the whole computer. Better bet- buy a new Toshiba Toughbook - that is practically impervious to the spilled drink. But expensive!
if you take a hard look at your laptop you'll probably find a key that to disable keyboard that with fn will do it
what type of laptop and model
also check in control panel mouse then device settings see if you disabled in there
nothing much you can do at this point. appearanly the printed ckt under neath the keyboard has a short.
did you spill some thing on the key board before???
try to see if there is something stuck under neath the keys.
other than that you need ot replace the keyboard.
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.
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.
