Question about Acer Computers & Internet
Sugar is the worst. If you had immediately unplugged and removed battery you may have had a chance. Once sugary drinks get in it's almost a death sentence for electronic devices. If it's valuable take it to a Qualified Computer Tech, if not right it off as a learning moment. If you want, this is a detailed explaination: http://www.guardian.co.uk/technology/askjack/2012/jul/05/drink-spilled-on-laptop

To give it a good cleaning, you will need to remove the keyboard and clean anywhere you can see juice or feel stickiness. You can buy the expensive computer cleaners, but I suggest 50/50 rubbing alcohol and Q-tips. Remove the battery and C-mos battery to make sure there is absolutely no power to the machine what so ever. After cleaning inside, you will want to give it a good 24 hours to dry, ensure that there is no moisture before applying power. If the juice reached the bottom of the machine, you may need to remove the screen, split the cases, and take the motherboard out, in order to clean the bottom side of the board. If you leave juice anywhere on the board it will gum up, and the acids in the juice will corrode and detierate the circuitry on the board causing a motherboard failure. Now the keyboard, in order to thoroughly clean the keyboard, I suggest that you spray a good amount of the rubbing alcohol in the keyboard, shake it or blow it out with air, then take paper towels and daub up the rest. Repeat this two or three times, then let it dry approx 24 hours. Sometimes the keyboard won't recover after a spill and will need replaced. If it works properly, then, after using the keyboard for a while, you will notice if any of the keys are sticking. Take the sticky key or keys off and clean them individually. I know it's alot of work, but it'll teach you not to keep open drinks around your laptop. It did me, I've ruined one machine, two keyboards, and thoroughly cleaned a third very expensive machine of mine to keep it working, but I finally learned to drink from a sippy around my laptops.

I'll start by telling you that most of the time keyboards don't recover from a spill. With that said, clean it by using a 50/50 rubbing alcohol in a spray bottle. Remove the keyboard from the machine, and spray the alcohol into the keyboard generously. Shake out the excess or blow it out with air, then use paper towels to daub up the rest. Repeat this process two or three times, then let the keyboard dry for a good 24 hours. While you have the keyboard off check for any juice or sticky areas in the machine, and clean them with the alcohol and Q-tips. Let this dry well also. After drying put the keyboard back on and try it. If you notice any sticky keys after using it for a while, then take the sticky keys off and clean them individually with the alcohol and Q-tips.

Two things. First the screws on the bottom of my laptop keep coming loose and falling out. And where do I get replacements.
Second, my DVD drive just quit playing. It's working as the light comes on but it wont connect with Media Player. And does this mean that I can't burn a CD?

wow, a little restraint next time :).. My thinkpad was dropped into a hottub let it sit for two weeks and everything except the M key worked.
Anyway I can tell you it's not worth your time, pull the Harddrive out go to tigerdirect get a brand new laptop for around 300-500$ and get a 25$ EIDE (or SATA if so equiped) to USB adapter so at least you can get your documents and what not from the old system..

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.

Watering your plants with orange juice is not a good idea because the sugars make it more difficult for plants to absorb water.
