Repair of the board may run up to $150...instead, search ebay for another unit (AS-IS) and use it for part swapping

Clp 288 slim book mouse stopped working after 1 day

First, try an external mouse. If that works, Click start (orb)> select control panel> select hardware and sound> select mouse> your mouse and touchpad software window will open (example: Synaptics is mine) select touchpad tab were you can turn it back on or reset to default as well as adjustments to your devices. Let us know either way if this helps you. Make it a great day!

Little water got spilled tried keys later they worked now hey dnt

It will continue to get worse and do a number of things. Moisture is really bad on dc pcb's. After it dries it will start to corrode. The best thing is do a full break down and remove and signs of corrosion. You may need to order a new keyboard. The long beep could indicate problems with either your ram or hard drive.
