LOL, you shouldn't eat and drink over your laptop. Count your blessings that you didn't shorten your motherboard out. The best way to clean it is to probably take it apart from the computer.
Remove the power cord, remove the battery, then turn the laptop over and start removing screws from the bottom. Look inside the battery case and there might be screws there, specifically there might be some with the icon of a keyboard. Once you have the screws removed, turn the laptop over and open the lid, then pry off the strip that is over the keyboard just under the lcd screen. Once you remove it you might see more screws that hold the keyboard in place so remove them. Once all screws are removed, lift the keyboard gently because there will be a cable underneath it. Remove the cable that is attached to the keyboard and then you can clean it. I would use something like a toothpick or Q-Tip cotton swab and maybe some rubbing alcohol. You'll have to hold keys down that are around the key you want to clean to get under the key you want to clean that is stuck. Once you've cleaned it press it repeatedly to make sure it does not stick.
take all the screws off the bottom (including the screws hidden by the optical drive), turn the laptop over, open it. there is a small strip of plastic right above the keyboard, pry it loose and remove the 4 screws from underneath to release the keyboard. disconnect all the exposed ribbon cables and any other cable connector that you can see. once you've done this pick a spot on one of the edges to start prying it apart. Use a small screw driver or plastic pry tool if you need it. (on this model I started with the top right hand corner.)
How to Replace a Fujitsu LifeBook S2210 Fan
1. Follow your laptop owner's manual and assembly guide carefully as you disassemble the laptop. Touch something metal periodically to remove static charge, and work on a large table with a bright light source.
2. Turn off the laptop and unplug it. Remove the main battery, DVD drive , Ac adapter and the hard drive. The hard drive is usually located in a slot on one side of the laptop. Remove the screw that holds the cover in place, then pull out the hard drive, screen sled.
3. Turn the laptop over and remove the screws on the bottom that hold the keyboard in place. Flip the laptop over, open it, then lift the keyboard up and out. Unplug the flexible ribbon cable that connects the keyboard to the motherboard.
4. Remove the screws that hold the laptop keyboard bezel and palm rest in place. Carefully pry loose any plastic snaps on the sides, then lift the bezel and palm rest up and out.
5. Unplug the Fujitsu LifeBook S2210 CPU Cooling Fan. Remove the screws that hold the heat sink and fan in place, then remove the entire unit from the laptop. Remove any thermal compound residue from the bottom of the heat sink and the CPU.
6. Apply a thin layer of thermal compound on the CPU, then replace the heat sink and cpu cooling fan. Replace the screws, plug the Fujitsu LifeBook S2210 Fan back in, then reassemble the laptop.
7. Plug the laptop in and turn it on. After you use it for a few minutes, you should hear the new Fujitsu cpu cooling fan running and feel warm air blowing from the vent on the side of the laptop. A Fujitsu LifeBook S2210 Fan does not run continuously, so don't be concerned if the Fujitsu LifeBook S2210 Fan shuts off periodically.
Thanks for giving Fixya the pleasure to solve your problem.
Follow these steps to change the fan:-
Turn off your Fujitsu and remove the main battery from the bottom of the device. Remove the screws on the underside of the laptop with your Phillips screwdriver.
Remove the compartment cover marked "Hard Drive" on the bottom of the laptop and unplug the thick cable connecting the computer to the hard drive. Gently pull the hard drive from its housing.
Turn your laptop right-side up and remove the screws on the backs of the two hinges that support the LCD monitor. Now open your laptop so the screen is facing you.
Insert the tip of your screwdriver under the edge of the thin plastic plate just above the keyboard. Gently pry it up and remove it from the computer. Lift the keyboard up from the top edge and disconnect the data ribbon connecting it to the motherboard. Remove the keyboard and set it aside.
Disconnect the two LCD ribbons that connect the screen to the computer and then unplug the touchpad ribbon connecting the touchpad to the computer.
Remove the screws on the sides of the frame underneath where the keyboard used to sit and remove the frame, exposing the internal components of the laptop.
Locate the square fan in the left corner of the computer and disconnect the single cable that runs from its side to the motherboard.
Remove the screws securing the fan to the computer and replace with the new fan (available from your Fujitsu retailer or online) and reassemble the laptop in the reverse order you took it apart.
Be prepared to buy a new keyboard... Remove AC and DC power before working on laptop. Many laptop keyboards come off with the removal of 1 to 5 screws from the bottom. Some, however, require the palm rest to be removed, then a couple of screws that hold in the keyboard. Be careful when removing and replacing cables.After removing keyboard, rinse with water and let dry thoroughly before re-attaching and powering up. You cannot remove individual keys, so don't try.
There should be several screws located on the bottom of the laptop directly below the keyboard. Often times, it will have a keyboard symbol next to it. Remove those screws, lift up the keyboard, disconnect the cable, and perform these steps in reverse to put the new keyboard in.
