SOURCE: Spilled coke on the touchpad and keyboard of Acer Aspire 5920

Not so sure on the touch pad, but the keyboard is easy to remove. Make sure the laptop is switched off first.
There are a series of little clips holding the keyboard on. Look along the top above the F keys you will see 3 or 4 little clips, push each of them in and up (away from the keyboard) using something thin and blunt so as not to cause any damage.
There will also be some little clips each side of the keyboard, these do not push in, you need to manoeuvre the keyboard past these.
Lift the keyboard from the top as it slots into some grooves at the bottom. There will be a ribbon cable connecting it to your laptop, this is easily undone and the keyboard is off.

SOURCE: keyboard doesnt function properly

It is possible that the keyboard matrix is shorted so when you use the external kbd it still gets the same errors. See if you can disable the main kbd in bios and if that solves the problem. You could also try removing the main kbd and see what that does. Otherwise you probably have a motherboard problem. The touchpads are usually pretty tough to liquids - check the cable on that.

SOURCE: 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

  • Moist a towel with warm water. It's just a case of wiping it off
  • Also Make sure that the computer is off.
  • You can also use alcohol-based cleaners, just make sure they will not go near the screen, they are sensitive to these materias

Spilled tea on keypad of macbook now it doesn't work


Open laptop and lay on heavy towels with the keyboard facing down, remove charger and main battery, most of the tea should drain out in this position, contact a service centre to assess the motherboard, sooner the better.

Spilled icetea on to laptop keyboard, will power up but nothing else screen is black. hp nc4200


Ugh, sorry you had the accident, but many a laptop has survived such a spill (or in my case spills) and booted to tell the tale.

I'm assuming you now have the machine powered off, if not shut ot down immediately and do not try to restart it until you have done the following. There is kind of a standard procedure for laptop spills that I will provide you.


The suggestions below assume that your nc4200 is no longer under warranty.


Remove anything attached to the machine, battery, cables, external drives, anything. Using a soft, slightly damp (yes damp - got to remove as much of that sugar as possible) cloth blot any liquid on the machine gently, do not rub.


Tilt the laptop gently from side to side to allow any possible liquid to drain out. Do not shake the laptop. The Place the laptop upside down so that any potential remaining liquid will drain out. Hopefully you did not spill this amount of tea 8^).


Secure a regular hair blow dryer. Set it to low and slowly move it back and forth over the keyboard from about six inches and do the same for the rest of the machine, focusing attention to the openings that it has for ventilation. Do this for about five minutes or so.


Now the hard part: Set aside the machine in a warm (not hot place) and wait (at least four hours and if you can wait overnight, even better).


Try booting it with nothing attached. If it still doesn't boot the problem has gone beyond the keyboard and you'll have to consider having it professionally serviced.


Good Luck and thanks for using Fix Ya

Update the driver for your Keyboard/Touchpad. Got to Dell's Download Page. Enter your Service Tag, underneath your laptop, to get the correct list of drivers for the corresponding model of your laptop. Make sure to select the correct operating system. The touchpad drivers are located in the Input Device Drivers section, listed as Dell Touchpad / Pointing Stick, Alps - Driver or Synaptics - Driver.

After installation, go to the Windows 7 Start or Orb then in the
type main.cpl, click main.cpl in the list of programs.

1. Click the Dell Touchpad tab.
2. Click Touchpad Settings.
3. Make sure there is a check in the box to the left of TouchCheck, move the slider bar all the way to the right (this can always be adjusted back).
4. Uncheck the box to the left of Tap to Click.
5. Move the slider in the Touch Sensitivity area to the right until it is 3/4 of the way toward Heavy Touch.
6. Click Apply, then click OK.
7. Click the X in the upper-right corner to close the Dell Touchpad Utility.

Got tea on my laptop


As i understand, the system seems to be working fine after the spillage ... there shouldnt be any issues other than the keyboard being sticky .
If the tea had seeped in then it could have fried the Motherboard. However , you could reach HP for support incase of any issues , if you tell them that the tea was spilled on the system then they might not cover the issue under warranty.

My wife spilled tea on her Dell Inspiron 5100. Now when attempt to start up goes to a black screen with blinking cursor and beeps incessantly. What does this mean, and can I fix it?


add milk!
well spilling tea on the keyboard has most likely fritzed the circuit The beeping and blinking, depending on the number of beeps relates to no monitor and no keyboard.wich seems to fit your description of the fault without having to count
As for fixing it yourself? I wouldn't attempt it.. too many levels to wade through and an expensive fix. anyway. cheaper to buy a new one
Try making a claim for a replacement on your home insurance as a fusion claim. ge3t a new laptop. Perhaps the brands that was used at the Olympics that can sustain dropping and water spills. Vario I think it was.

I spilled tea on my packard bell easynote


Two things to check.
Open the laptop up and re-connect the keyboard connection. It has a locking mechanism so be sure to unlock that first. Also when you're doing that you can see if there's any water (tea) still in there to dry off.
If that doesn't work, then plug in an external keyboard mate, cause the only other way to fix this is to replace the keyboard, the parts to open up the laptop keyboard itself are intricate and it's much too compicated, plus I've never done that (Seeing as that it's all glued together).
Hope this helps, be sure to rate!

Mouse pad wont work after water spill


not difficult..with right tools and patience..the touchpad is part of the upper assembly, and requires that the bottom be removed. When I do this, it takes around an hour.

You could try removing the keys out of the keyboard and cleaning it with a damp cloth and a can of compressed air. If the tea hit the circuitry of the board though you may have to get a new one.
