Oh that doesn't sound good! As you have found out, liquids and keyboards don't play well together.

Sounds like two problems. First, You might want to remove the keyboard and try to clean it up as well as possible. If this doesn't work, you may need to replace it.

Secondly, it sounds like some of the water got down into the power
supply area. Some lap tops have a replaceable power sect.but most have the power section as a part of the mother board. If it is a part of the mother board,the resolution would be to replace the mother board.

Wish I had better news for you,but hope this information helps.
If you have further questions,please feel free to get back to me, and have a good day!

How to fix a laptop keyboard if you spill something on it


Okay, I will now try to explain how to fix a laptop keyboard if you spill something on it (juice, coffe,.....). Problems caused by this are sticky keys, some keys don't work,.....

First of all, don't panic! Turn off your computer immediately, and pull the battery out. Unscrew a couple of screws that are holding the keyboard, and remove carefully keybord out of a laptop. Removing the keyboard can be different, depending on the laptop model. When you remove keyboard, fill a bowl with a fresh water with a few drops of a mild detergent for washing the dishes (3-5 drops per 1 liter of water). Bowl should be bigger than the keyboard, so you can submerge keybord in water. When you submerge the keyboard, gently press all the buttons with your palm, doing this you allow water to enter inside and clean the keyboard from inside. After pressing buttons for about 10 minutes, change the water for a fresh one, this time clean water, without the detergent. Do this with just clean water 2-3 times, and when you finish, shower the keyboard, just to make sure it is washed properly and the detergent is gone. DON'T USE THE HAIR DRYER TO DRY THE KEYBOARD, AND DON'T PUT IT ON DIRECT SUN. Turn the keyboard upside down and put it on a towel and let it dry. It should be dry in about 6-8 days on a room temperature, so be patient. DON'T EVER wash the keyboard with alcohol or something like that.

This is very good way to fix the keyboard, i solved a great number of keyboards using this method.

Some of the keys dont work and CRTL is always press on.


Your Keyboard pad is full of dust or there is someliquid that spilled down the keyboard and the keys are now sticky. This is normally solved by opening up your laptop and have the keyboard pad cleaned entirely. Probably you need to get a computer techincian who is going to help you to strip up the computer and be able to clean the keybord. Make sure you remove the power adpter from the socket and that the laptop battery is removed. Use a smooth cotton cloth with a bit of benzene or methrated spirit when cleaning. Let the keyboard pad dry up for about 20minutes, ten re-connect everything as it was and you should be good.

Has anyone spilled any liquid onto the keyboard?
This is a common indicator as to why the keyboard gives wrong character inputs.
If this is the problem, the keyboard will need replacing

If this is not the case try pressing the FN and NUMlock keys together

How to Fix Spilt Liquid on bda25ce.jpg?
You accidentally knocked fruit drink or a late night glass of milk on your laptop or your child spilled a good portion of milk directly into your keyboard. You hear a popping noise, the screen goes black. Water by itself is not as bad as milk or juice, both of which are corrosive/acidic, or coffee, tea, soda, etc.
First and most important -Calm Down and unplug the computer from its power source.
Disconnect it from the power cord and remove the battery. If needs, please remove the keyboard. The old adage - Water and Electricity don't mix - is quite true. For your laptop spilled water, let your laptop dry. Do not attempt to turn on the computer for at least 72 hours. Let it sit in a cool, dry place. If you disassembled the laptop, reassemble it after 72 hours have passed.

Water spilled onto laptop and now its not booting up


Water spills are almost always fatal for laptops. Try this. Pull the battery out. Wrap the laptop in paper towels,put the laptop in a bag of White rice for 24 hours. Then plug the laptop in without the battery and see if the light is on the ac adapter. Turn the laptop on and check the light again. If it doesn't work you will need to replace the keyboard and motherboard. This is usually not worth doing on older laptops.

Some of the keys work and a few just dont ....I am not sure if the keys are broken....stuck or if my laptop has been dropped or something.It's just not working right


Did someone (not you, of course) spill something (sugar in coffee, tea, cocoa, soft-drink, beer) onto the keyboard? If so, as the liquid dries, the sugar dries up, and gums-up the works.

Get a qualified technician to replace the keyboard.

How to clean spill out of keyboard on hp pavilion dv7 1245dx


Best thing to do is to take the keyboard out of the laptop. There is usually a top cover above the keyboard that needs to come off. Then there is some screws holding in the keyboard, unscrew those and then unhook the ribbon part of the keyboard off of the motherboard.

Then at that point take a paper towel or washcloth with glass cleaner and clean all around where the spillage is.

Also clean off the keyboard is well and let it sit for a day so it can dry out.

Then put the keyboard back and see if the keyboard is working properly, if not then you'll need to replace it.
