Spilled coke on the touchpad and keyboard of Acer Aspire 5920

Keys and buttons are working fine at the moment, albeit a little sticky, but I want to clean under the keys and touchpad buttons asap so they don't get corrosion damage. How do I go about removing the keyboard, or is there a safer method?

Not so sure on the touch pad, but the keyboard is easy to remove. Make sure the laptop is switched off first.
There are a series of little clips holding the keyboard on. Look along the top above the F keys you will see 3 or 4 little clips, push each of them in and up (away from the keyboard) using something thin and blunt so as not to cause any damage.
There will also be some little clips each side of the keyboard, these do not push in, you need to manoeuvre the keyboard past these.
Lift the keyboard from the top as it slots into some grooves at the bottom. There will be a ribbon cable connecting it to your laptop, this is easily undone and the keyboard is off.

How do I fix sticky keys on netbook?


Physically sticky keys because you spilled something on them or sticky keys keyboard shortcuts?
The first you don't really unless you want to dismantle the keyboard and clean the entire thing (do-able but it would take you a long time and you risk breaking the pieces under each key) I would just buy a new keyboard on ebay for $15-30 and have someone replace it.
Second, keyboard short cuts you can disable under Control Panel > Ease of Use > "Make the keyboard easier to use" and uncheck sticky keys.

Comment if you need more assistance and please rate the solution if you found it useful.
Thanks,
Justin

Spilled coke on my keyboard, how do we clean it


Hi

Thank you for your query

Best thing would be to get a damp cloth and simply wipe over the keyboard when the laptop is switched off, this will remove the stickyness.

Please ensure when wiping that no water travels into the keyboard which may cause you problems

Keys qazwsx12 do not work on the keyboard for my acer aspire 5920 laptop


i would suggest you get a new keyboard. Has anything been spilt on it. The keys you have said, sound like a cluster that has gone within the keyboard. The keyboard shouldnt be to much. You can take a keyboard out of a laptop either by unscrewing some screws on the back with a little keybaord next to them, or you would need to carfully pry a cover next to the keyboard to show the screws that are holding it down.

Sticky keyboard


You can carefully take off the keys and pop them back on. Use alcohol to wipe up any stickiness.
