Question about Computers & Internet
My daughter spilt something on her advent 7108 laptop. She took off all the keys and cleaned up as much as she could. Some of the keys are still sticking and some are now missing. I would like information on how to change the whole keyboard and clean it and then replace with a new keyboard.
I have had the same problem several times over and it is VERY likely that the liquid has reached other components (specifically the motherboard) and will corrode anything that the liquid has come to rest on. The keyboard itself is easy enough to remove and replace, but the only place I am finding parts for advents is in the UK. This means replacement of the keyboard COULD be costly and in the long run the computer may fail due to corrosion especially if it was pop or juice or any other acidic liquid.
Here is the link I found for a possible solution.
if they dont have it, these guys might...
Good luck, and I hope you havent damaged your motherboard! Kirk
