Question about Acer Aspire Computers & Internet
I have spilled tea on my keyboard. My touchpad can move but I can not click anything. Can my touchpad be broken? Also my keys are sticky; is there a way I can clean my keyboard? I have a Aspire 7750Z.
Your keyboard is scrapped......go to the nearest service center.....(if you have a warranty) this wont be covered in the warranty you have.

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.

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.

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
