Wow, bad luck day. immediately flip the laptop upside down in an open position so the keyboard is flat on the table use some paper towel under the keyboard... more comments. to follow... do this immediately
All you need to do is prop open your keyboard and wash it. Go to this website and it will show you how to open your laptop up. http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/toshiba-satellite-a135/remove-mainboard-1.htm you can start at STEP 7. The plate WILL prop open, Just be patient. And also watch for the tap connector. Also, your keys will prop open easily also. Pull with your hands. Just put them together when you are done. Use a universal cleaner and wait for it to dry before putting the keyboard back together
As for cleaning a laptop computer keybord, I would use a can for compressed air, q-tips, and soapy water. I would be careful about getting the laptop too wet as water can seep into the computer. Hope this helps!!
If this was helpful please rate with a 4 thumbs up!! Thanks for using fixya.com!!
You got a key sutck on the lil ol keyboard of yours you need to invistage what key is doing this and have it fixed or worse replace the keyboard entirely the beeping is comming from a key being pressed in and held in
Depending upon how sticky the keys are, it might be easier to buy a cheap replacement keyboard. Trust me, it takes a whole lot of patience and a steady hand to take apart the keyboard key by key and then put it back together.
My Toshiba Satellite A45 S120 keyboard has a problem, some of the keys are not working. When you type it does noting. Sometimes when you start the computer, it continuously types the letter eeeeeeee. You can hit some keys randomly and this will stop, but if you start a program (eg. ms word) the same thing happens.
You can try blowing it out with compressed air, but you will probably need to remove the keyboard to make sure nothing was spilled or stuck in there. You should be able to remove the keyboard by removing the battery, then removing the keyboard securing strip, and then you should be able to take a screwdriver and pry the keyboard up and out.
ok, if u have installed any RAM or BIOS battery now is the time to tell me, or if what i just said made no sense then ur keyboard either has something spilt on it or its ribbon connection to the motherboard or daughterboard (depending in the laptop) is loose. about $25 down at a IT repair shop will fix that. if u want further explanation reply here,
Try reseating the cable that connects the keyboard first.
If that doesnt help there may be liquid around the connector and it needs to be cleaned off to keep the circuit from shorting out. You will need to find someone with the appropriate chemicals and may have to take the laptop further apart to clean it all up.
This is why when anyone gets a liquid spill i recommend getting it torn down right away and cleaned up, as it can damage things you cant even see. If the liquid has been in there too long it may not be repairable.
