Question about Computers & Internet
I accidentally spilled some milk onto my desk. Most of which got on my mouse (which is working fine) but a few drops dribbled onto my keyboard. I immediately cleaned it up. I then noticed that my screen was spazzing out. Drop-down menus in windows were fluttering, I couldn't type anything, etc. I thought it was my mouse, originally, but eventually unplugged the keyboard and the problem stopped. I'm now using another keyboard and it is working fine. Is this possible to fix?

SOURCE: scrambled keyboard
Have you tried cleaning and reseating the zif connector that connects the keyboard to the motherboard? Depending on how many cats and kids bang on the laptop, that can cause a problem. Another possibility is using an external keyboard and see if the same thing happens. If so, look to see if a keyboard program of some sort is running. If the external keyboard works fine, then you will need to replace the internal one, or just continue using the external one.

Seems like new batteries did the trick. Should start simple.
But I am not totally convinced. I will keep an eye on it.

Okay i had this problem but I went to Dell and downloaded this driver
Either click this link provided or copy into browser.
Download, install, and restart.
I hit the connect button on moth the USB and the mouse at the login screen, clicked the mouse button, and VIOLA, it worked!
Scrolling works, drop down menu's and the forward and back buttons on the mouse work as well!
Hope this helps to those who have experienced this little hiccup.
