Keyboard dont type


No matter how careful you may be, knocking a cup of coffee or spilling a glass of soda over your keyboard may happen. This does not, however, mean the end of your keyboard. If you act quickly, you may be able to fix your wet keyboard to avoid any corrosion of its electronic components or any short circuit which might render it unusable. By following a few recommendations, you should be able to fix your wet computer keyboard.

Unplug the keyboard from your computer immediately after the spill to avoid any corrosion or short circuit. If you spilled water over your laptop's keyboard, turn your computer off by clicking on "Shut Down" on "Turn Off" in the start menu, unplug the power supply and remove the battery. Turn the keyboard upside down and shake it to remove most of the water from it. Take a hair dryer and set it to its lowest temperature setting. Use it to dry any water which might remain under your keyboard's keys. Wait at least 12 hours before plugging your keyboard into your computer again. If your computer is a laptop, wait 12 hours before turning it on again. For Other Liquids Disconnect the keyboard from your computer immediately after the spill to avoid any short circuit or corrosion. Turn your computer off by selecting "Shut Down" or "Turn Off" in the start menu, remove the battery and disconnect the power supply. Place paper towels on a table, turn the keyboard upside down and shake it over them to allow most of the liquid to fall down. Take a few clean paper towels and wipe the liquid off your keyboard's keys. To clean between the keys, you can also use cotton swabs with just a little bit of water. If the liquid which you spilled over your keyboard contained a high amount of sugar, such as soda or sugared coffee, you might have to remove some of your keyboard's keys to clean the surface under the keys with paper towels or swabs. You can do so by lifting them gently with a screwdriver or by using a key remover, which you can find in some IT stores. Wait at least 12 hours before using your keyboard again. If your computer is a laptop, wait the same length of time before turning it on again.

Hi, i have a toshiba x205-s9800. my two year old seems to have accidently pressed some keys and disabled the keyboard...please help...


You could have deleted the keyboard in the device manager. If so, rebooting your computer and it will find it.
Are all the keys not working or just some? Take a look at this hint and see if it fits.

The keys do not work. My 2 year old spilled coffee on my laptop. Some keys worked but most on the left side keys didn't. I tried to clean the keys with a cotton swab and alcohol. Now none of the...


Best solution now is to find a replacement keyboard. They are very easy to replace. Also, could use an external keyboard. Not ideal but it works.

As for cleaning, if the coffee had sugar and cream there is not much you can do.

There is one option I hesitate to suggest. Take the keyboard off, run it under warm water and let it dry for a few days before putting it back. May or may not work.

Some keys on my laptop dont work


Trying a desktop keyboard is useful for determining if it is a keyboard problem or a software problem. This usualy happens if some liquid has gotten into the keyboard, but you said thats not possible. Try to boot into bios, the first screen that pops up when you boot, on a toshiba it is usually pressing F1 or Del. then if your Arrow keys don't work there, you need a new keyboard.

I spilled coffee on to the keyboard of my compaq presaria b1900 laptop. I wish to remove the keyboard to clean it, as two-thirds of the keys are no longer working. How is this done?


Hi Dobbin,

Tell me you like coffee black, no cream, no sugar. That makes the mess less sticky.

First off, I'd advise against dismantling a laptop. Try this first:

Get yourself some canned air (several cans) and a good vacuum. I assume you've gotten as much as you're going top get from the K/B via paper towels and such.

What we are going to do is freeze whats left and **** it out with the vacuum. Use the narrowest attachment you have .

Use the tube that came with the canned air to get it between the keys. Hold the canned air upside down so the propellant comes out. This will instantly freeze anything it touches, including you, so be careful, where eye protection.

Do a little at a time, Freeze, work the keys, vacuum, freeze, vacuum, work, freeze, vacuum. Get the picture?

You can do this with th machine running, preferably with Notepad or something similar up. This way you can tell when the keys come back to life.

I know it sounds weird, but give it a shot. I ran a help desk where we got two or three of these a month. The canned air is a little pricey, but nothing compared with the cost of the laptop.

Good Luck,
Mike

Ihave a faulty letter on key board which is not the button .Ihave been told this can be fixed any help please


Keyboards get dirty & its easy for things (like stapes), to get caught underneath a key. You can buy another keyboard for $10-$15 but if you want to try something 1st, try holding the keyboard upside down & shaking it. You'll be surprised how much stuff falls out. While you've got it upside down, hit the q & s keys a couple of time to see if you can loosen whatever it is that's stuck. And if that doesn't help, you could remove the screws from the back and open up the keyboard and clean it that way. Keyboards simply press on a membrane which send the signal to the PC. If the membrane under the q & s keys is bad, then the keyboard is bad and you'll have to get another one.

Your Keyboard is most likely to be screwed. A drop of coffee is enough to damage it. You will have to replace the keyboard. cleaning will work onlly if something is obstructing you from pressing the keys.

Hi. I spilled coffee on keyboard ACER 9410 laptop. Now a couple of the keys do not work and screen jumps when I hit some keys on right side of keyboard. Can I replace the keyboard to fix the problem and...


I did the same thing. Here's what I did:
Took whole thing apart. Cleaned any coffee with q-tips dipped in water / paper towels. Removed the keyboard. Ran it through the dishwasher with no soap in it and heated dryer off of course.
I let it dry for a day and was bummed that now the whole keyboard stopped working. Well then 4 days later to my surprise / delight.. the whole thing started working again. New keyboards on ebay were also very reasonable. But mine still works perfectly after the dishwasher cleaning.
