SOURCE: spill soda on my laptop keyboard

It is likely the only problem is that the soda is causing the keys to stick. There is probably no damage to any other internal components. Usually, laptop keyboards have a metal-based frame/tray that will protect the internal components from minor spills.

If you want to get rid of the cracking sound, you'll need to purchase a replacement keyboard from the laptop manufacturer or another source such as eBay, and then remove the sticky keyboard and replace it with the newly purchased one.

SOURCE: Keyboard problem in Dell Latitude PPX C Family

Actually this is a common problem with these Dell's. I have never found a cure for it other than replacing the keyboard. Fortunally they are not expensive, you can usually get one off of eBay for around $20 or so.

Hope this helps

I spilled salad on my computer. Curser works, but clicking gets nothing


Need to know if it's a laptop or desktop. Was the food spilled onto the keyboard or into the CPU? If the spill occurred to a desktop (detachable) keyboard, simply buy a new or used keyboard. Not expensive. A laptop is more costly to fix - requires removal of case. You can always use an external keyboard with a laptop -just plug into USB port.
You may be able to clean an external keyboard by repeatedly pressing the various keys where the spill occurred. If all else fails, get some electrical contact cleaner from Radio Shack or Auto Zone, unplug the keyboard, and spray cleaner sparingly around the keys where the spill occurred. I would not spray a laptop - too much electronics to fry. After spraying again press the keys repeatedly. Replug and look for improvement. By the way, USB keyboards are cheap on Ebay or Caigslist. I get them for $10 each,

This afternoon my laptop was working fine, then the keyboard started messing up, when I pressed any letter it came up with 4 other letters. Then i pressed '9' once and it continuously typed 9 until I


First thing I would ask is this. Was anything spilled on the key board? I had a situation similar to this and I found that my son spilled a Sprite and wiped it up but didn't tell me about it. One way to check this is to hook an aftermarket keyboard that runs off your USB2 port and see if the keys work correctly that way. If they do, I would suspect that something was spilled into your laptop keyboard.

Spilled soda on toshiba laptop m505, keyboard is not working. keys don't stick anymore but not working. what do you recommend to fix it?


You need a new keyboard. The sugar in the soda caused the damage and will further corrode the keyboard.

I would also recommend that you clean the area where the soda may have spilled to on the system board.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response

Thanks, Joe

Kid spilled soda now keyboard will not type


Hi There !!

Thank you for choosing Fixya. The chances are rare that it would work, because liquid may have done damage to the integrated circuit.

But we can give it a try:

What you will need:
  • lint free cloth.
  • dry cloth or duster.
  • suitable cleaning fluid (isopropyl alcohol).
  • cotton buds.
  • Can of compressed air or vacuum cleaner.
  • Flat tip screwdriver (optional for thorough clean).
Shutdown your PC and remove the mains plug, unplug the keyboard(remember where it was plugged in) and hold it upside down to releaseany debris from inbetween the keys.

This is where the patience comes in, make a note ofthe position of all the keys or you will have trouble putting them backcorrectly, alternatively just remove the letter keys A - Z from the keyboard (which is where the most of the dust/debris will be) and refer to fig 1.4 as a reference to put them back.

All the keys can be removed although the larger keys (space bar, enterkey, shift keys, backspace, caps lock, etc) can be difficult to putback so you might avoid removing them.

Remove the keys using the screwdriver, ease the screwdriver under the key and gently lift the key top off (see fig 1.3).

note: don't forget to make a note of their position !! remove-key-cap.jpg keyboard-layout.gifWhen you have removed all the keys (except any keys youwish to avoid) use the compressed air (or vacuum cleaner) to remove anydust and debris from inside the keyboard.

Now is a good time to give the keys a proper clean, for bestresults clean each one individually (the patience thing again) with thecloth and cleaning fluid, when clean, wipe them over with the drycloth.

Before replacing the keys, take your lint free cloth anddampen it with your cleaning fluid (don't put the liquid directly onthe keyboard), give the surface of the keyboard a good wipe overensuring to clean as much as possible any keys that you haven'tremoved.

When the keyboard is nice and clean replace the keys according to your notes or if you have just removed the letter keys use fig 1.4 as a guide, to put the keys back on position the key in place and press gently but firmly until it clicks home.

After replacing all the keys give the keyboard a quick wipe over with your dry cloth and you have a nice clean keyboard.

Hope this will help !

Regard's

Keys on the keyboard do not spell the words correctly


First of all check the keys carefully to see that no key is depressed(especially Function and Toggle keys) ok. Drag your pc to Safe Mode by pressing F8 key before it boots to Windows. Allow to stabilize on the desktop and try the keys again. If it doesn't work properly here, then I'm afraid it has to be taken to the specialist. Good luck.

Top letters pressed also types the above numbers


Hi there.
After a liquid spill on the keyboard and you have done your best to clean it and the keys still do the same thing, your only option is to replace the keyboard.
I have come across this problem many times, some keyboards you can clean and bring them back to good working order and others you have no choice but to replace.
Liquids like soda or sweet coffee do the worst damage to keyboards.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!!
