Hi,

thank you for choosing Fixya.com

i strongly advice you that don't use your laptop as of now.
the reason why keyboard are malfunctioning is the subtance of coke are go inside your unit and if you will still use it it may caused you a much problem.
you need to look a technician and open your laptop to take or dry any subtances come inside your laptop.

Hopefully you will consider my suggestion.

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.

Coke spilled in the keyboard of my laptop and the keys are sticking together now. How do I get the coke out and make my keys stop sticking??


Accidents like this happen, not to worry too much about it.

Method 1: use a damp cloth, (ensure it is not dripping) and clean it multiple times.
Method 2: if you can remove the keyboard (refer to the manual / website support.hp.com for the procedure) and use a damp cloth to clean it and use a vacum cleaner to dry it.

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

Some letters can't be typed


You need to replace the whole keyboard since the 4 letters is not working at all. You cannot change only 4 letter keys from your laptop.

Note: If machine is under warranty no need to pay for the repairs.

Spilled juice on my H P Pavilion laptop keyboard, keyboard is not working at all. Please help!


Do you have an HP Accidental Damage extended warranty? If you do, you can call HP's tech support and get it fixed/replaced.

If you don't have the extra warranty, you can try to carefully pop the keyboard keys off and carefully clean underneath as the contacts below the keys are possibly stuck in the down position.

You may have to take it to a service centre and have a technician open up the laptop and see if it can be cleaned and try to "unstuck" the keyboard keys.

Coke spilled on to the keyboard for my laptop, but i still can turn it on and the mouse will work but the keyboard won't, i took off the keyboard to dry under it and put it back together but keyboard still...


Take it to the closest computer repair shop... And have them clean your laptop... Maybe the coke short circuited something on the board, and now it doesn't work ...

Help please tell me why my keys will not work on my laptop.


Try using an external USB desktop keyboard (or a PS2 keyboard, if you have a PS2 jack on the laptop).

If everything works then, your laptop keyboard is malfunctioning. This is usually due to one of three causes:

1. One key is stuck in the "down" or "depressed" position (collapsed/dented silicone cup beneath, or damaged flex legs under key). Look at the keyboard from the side, to see f any key looks lower than the rest (or higher than the rest) Be careful taking it apart to clean and reassemble.

2. Bad ribbon connector, torn, or merely corroded/oxidized keyboard cable connector. This requires opening the laptop to fix. Usually 2-3 screws under laptop labeled as keyboard, allow it to be pried off. Release the cable LOCK, and remove the thin ribbon cable. Reinsert it 5-6 times to clean off contacts, and LOCK the jack again once you are sure it is all snug. If the ribbon was TORN, you will need a new one. Good luck, not easy to find on old laptops.

3. Worst scenario... someone spilled coke (the worst) or beer/beverage inside the keyboard. This eats up the printed oxide connectors, and this cannot be repaired. you will need a new keyboard assembly.. Use a magnifying glass to look between keys, to see if there is stickey, gooey material there. This would be the bad news indicator for number 3.
