YOU HAVE REMOVE THE KEYBOARD FROM THE LABTOP, WHAT IS THE KEYBOARD SETTING ON OR SETTING IN, SEE ANY TYPE OF LATCHS, 4 JELEWERY PHILLIPES HEAD TYPE OF SCREW DRIVERS TIPS, EACH CORNER FOR THE TOP OF THE KEYBOARD KEYS MAY HAVE TO BE REMOVE TO SEE THE LATCHES OR SCREWS OR ATTACHMENT CONNECTOR PINS, AT ONE POINT YOU MAY HAVE TO REMOVE EVERY KEY TO CLEAN THE COFFEE FROM THE BOOT WHERE THE BUTTON PUSHES DOWN WHERE EACH KEY IS AT.

Hey,

its not a easy task.

I think you need to take it completely apart to get inside, the coffee most likely got inside the keyboard and is causing the problem.

all the keys need to come off, then look at it and see if you take take it apart, it might be glued together.

Not a easy fix.

You need to get inside to clean it, but in the process you might make it useless, and then how to get it back together.

I feel you will do better with a brand new keyboard.


Let me know if you need anything else.


Thanks,
Ekse

If the plastic hinges and the tiny rubber press contact are still on the keyboard, you can align the key over the plastic hinge and press firmly down until you hear the key click back in place.
OR
You can purchase a replacement keyboard from several companies on the Internet. I purchased one from Yall Store - Use this link

Coffee on key board


Hey,

You need to replace the keyboard. Turn the laptop off. Dry the keyboard. fully. Hopefully the coffee is only on the keyboard and there wasn't enough coffee to get inside the computer.

So if after drying the keyboard completely it still doesn't function.
You need to get a replacement keyboard.

I just bought one from ebay few weeks ago www.ebay.com see if you can find one for your model.


Let me know if you need anything else.


Thanks,
Ekse

I spilt coffee on my laptop. The keyboard is not working


usually laptop keyboard and touch pad have a protecting cover for situations like this, but would depends on how much, how far and how long the liquid stayed on the keyboard and pads surface.

one thing to check though.

remove again the keyboard of the book and check the keyboard cable going to the board if its tightly fix, same with all other connectors.

if still the same problem...then the keyboard is fried.

Laptop keyboard needs cleaning


I had a client with that problem--we removed the keyboard and tried to clean it. Turns out that our cleaning job was less than perfect because the laptop keyboard is mostly sealed. There was liquid that seeped down onto the motherboard as well--that we could clean up. The long and short of is--you will probably need to replace the keyboard. Of course, with nothing to lose, you could wash the keyboard and let it dry out thoroughly, plug it in, and see if it works. The key here would be the thorough drying. If you decide to try this chancy procedure, don't dry it with high heat. A hair dryer set on low might be the answer.
