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.

Sticky buttons


Lifting it up may break the buttons.... Can you try using cotton bud and try cleaning it; if it can enter without forcing it; dip it in a methylated spirit and apply it gently.

How do I strip key board on my laptop to clean spilt coffee


http://www.laptop-repair.info/laptop_keyboard_repair.html
the steps to remove the keyboard is to remove the hinges cover first ..than the screws holding the keyboard in place (under the hinges cover) ..than slide it an inch forward (toward the screen ) ..and after that lift it up ...remove the ribbon from the plug ...and this is all ..replace it if you have the possibility ..or ..remove all buttons ...and clean it up ...and dry it well before replace it and see if it work s..If the damage is permanent you need a new one and the procedure is just the reverse..

To clean your laptop's keyboard you have to look under your laptop, you can see like keyboard icons with some scews, so, open them, they will let yout to remove your keyboard.
So now your can remove just your keyboard slowly for some connectors on the motherboard then clean it with a tooth brush.

You can only clean your keyboard with a toothbrush without rmoving it,

Try to remove the space bar key and clean under it.

Try to hard press the space bar for about 5 times, it can release the pusher under the key.

it some liquid was spilt on it you have to remove the keyboard and clean the plastic under ther keyboard.


Good luck

Replacing keyboard for advent 7108 laptop


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.  http:/www.adventspares.co.uk  if they dont have it, these guys might... http://www.techno-mart.co.uk/advent.html
Good luck, and I hope you havent damaged your motherboard! Kirk

Juice on keyboard - Acer Aspire 5633WLMi


This is a toughie. I had a Sony Vaio last year which popped a key off one day, and I never could get it popped back in. you might try it with one key, but that wouldn't guarantee that another wouldnt break. Call Acer telephone support (if you go online for support, they don't even list their telephone number, but try to trick you into thinking you have to use their hair-tearing lousy self-diagnosing troubleshooting programs online, which are worse than useless). If you get a rep who won't help you, demand to speak to a supervisor. Acer customer support is 800 816-2237, 8 to 5:30==not certain if they are open weekends. Good luck.

Viewsonic Tablet PC keyboard issue.


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.

Good luck!
