I did the same some two years ago, with the R100 on. I switched everything off, dismounted the computer body (not the screen)up to the last screw, and dried that sweet coffee from everywhere where I found it. Mostly this was the keyboard and mouse. The motherboard is luckily protected by some plastic sheet.
Regarding the keyboard, after disconnecting it from the motherboard, I washed it completely under flowing water and then let it dry for several days. In the meantime, I used a USB one. Since then, I used the same keyboard for two years until now, when it died, apparently rather from some motherboard-related reason than water. So I think - you may get a new keyboard, but if youre lucky, you may as well revive this old one.

Re: Toshiba R100 keyboard not working
You Can Get A Replacement From The Company But As For Saving The Old One It Is Only Possible If You Didn't Have It On When You Spilled It. If It Was On It Caused The Board To Short Maybe Try Removing The Key Board Circuit Board And Putting It In A Big Dish Of Rubbing Alcohol. Scrub Well With A Clean Tooth Brush Then Remove And Let It Dry. This May Solve Your Problem. You May Only Fix A Couple Keys If You Do Though Then Repeat The Alcohol Scrub.

Hi,yes there is but you'll have to open the system up,if you have no prior I.T expertise I'd suggest you take to a qualified Technician,but if you do here is how:First remove the Battery,then uncouple the system taking of where each of the screws go to then locate the CMOS battery(small battery Lithium Ion mostly in the shape of a cent or smaller),it may be underneath the keyboard or just behind once the external cover is open.unplug it from the system for about an hour or two reconnect it,couple the system and boot,go to Bios,reset Date and Time and save,then exit.
Assuming this is the same style of case as the older Portege models, the bezel on the bottom of the keyboard or on top between the keboard and the display should pry off (although there might be a screw or two into it around the hinge on the top) separately- they cap tabs on the edges of the kbd, or screws.
Probably, could have some slide catches at the top edge of the keyboard instead, need a thin blade screw driver oh lift the keyboard. Some laptops mark the screws with the letter K in indicate keyboard screws, some keyboard screws may be hidden under the battery pack, CD/DVD drive.
1. If the batteries are dead then there's no way that you can charge them again. You're better off purchasing a new one. You can purchase one online by visiting the ToshibaDirect website or by calling them on 1-800-316-09202.
2. Yes, you can use the power cords to run the computer. Just plug them in using the power cords even with the batteries removed and it should work fine.
3. Yes you can but you might experience some current fluctuations. This is negligible on a CMOS battery though.
If you are getting the message after the beep that Press F1 to continue after the beep and your system is working fine in every manner except the keyboard, you might have your KBD corrupted. better to check it with authorised service center for Keyboard interface or the complete Keyboard.
You need to clean the keyboard. Blow it with air blower so that the paricles inside keyboard will be eliminated. If not work, then you disassemble the keyboard and clean the key one by one. afraid to do , then let the repairman do it for you or you can attach USB keyboard for the laptop.
