My keyboard on my acer aspire 5336-2524 got wet on few keys i wiped it off shutt it down tipped upside down cleaned with alcohol wipes turned it back on and now none of it works its like keyboard was...


Well it depends on what the liquid was and how much went in. If the liquid was a fizzy drink like coke then the sugar works as an acid and dissolves the carbon tracking within the layers on the board and renders it useless. However some keys will work and others not. In your case nothing works and that sounds like the motherboard has got wet and if that is the case then it will be useless. The only way you could use the laptop if everything else works would be to buy a usb keyboard and use that. not very portable though!!!

What is the best way to prevent spillage from messing up the keyboard


It depends on what kind of spillage. Unless you can find some cover to put over the keyboard, the simplest solution is to keep ALL LIQUIDS as far away from the computer as you can manage.
however, depending on the type of liquid, you can in most cases, if your fast enough, you can wipe off the spill, or disconnect the keyboard and pop the keys off to clean underneath. (keeping sure not to touch the circuit board underneath). Most desktop keyboards allow you to do this quite easily (just make sure to do them one by one- the last thing you need, is to forget where each key is supposed to go, and put for example the "K" key where the "G" key is supposed to be. ) a quick response is especially needed for spillages with sticky liquids, such as Orange Juice or Coke/Pepsi (a computer service tech's worst nightmare) or liquids that will dry with a thick stain, such as coffee/milk products.If the problem is just water however- leave it out to dry for a few days in a really warm, dry place. The board should work with no problems afterwards.
Hope this helps!

How do I remove and clean the keyboard? Some of my letters are really stiff.


Well completely removing the keyboard wont really help, seeing as how there is an underlay board it rest on. Also you risk voiding any type of warranty by doing so.

So I'm assuming coke or some other type of drink or sticky substance is making the keys stiff.

Best advise to you is to manually take a small knife..or butter knife would be safer and lifting up each key very carefully till it pops off. If you are careful there should be no worries and you can clean the board under the keys the best you can...(DO NOT OPENLY POOR WATER OR CLEANING SOLUTION) take a rag or a towel, lightly moisturize it and clean or wipe carefully.

Then just re-seat the keys back to the board as the springs and or latches under the keys should just snap back into place.

Remember where the keys go also, or typing could get interesting for you if you look at the keyboard.

I myself ...do not even glace at the keyboard anymore :P

Give me thumbs please!

I recently have been having problems w/certain keys on my Apple Keyboard with Numeric Keypad. I used some wipes to clean it the other day...and almost immediately the spacebar & a lot of of other keys...


some of the fluid from the wipes must have short circuited the keyboard! you may have to invest in a new keyboard and keep it away from water based wipes this time!

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

I spilled a coke on my desk and my key pad got wet I immediately dried it off and put it upside down,but its been a little off by inserting spaces where they don,t belong(I just read this and it,s better...


Coke is sticky when dried, if you can, disconnedt the keyboard and pull the keys off, a flat blade screwdriver should work and wipe everything down.
Or buy a new keyboard for about 10 bucks

Spill soda on my laptop keyboard


Um the sounds would be the coke sticking to your keys i imagine, if you have any idea how, take the keyboard out and on a cloth spray some household bench cleaner and wipe over keyboard. Dont spray directly on the keyboard. If this fails, replace the keyboard. If you dont know how to, or you are afraid you may damage it, take it to a local IT tech to do all the cleaning for you

Take it to the closest computer repair shop... And have them clean your laptop... Maybe the coke short circuited something on the board, and now it doesn't work ...

I have a Compaq R4000 and recently spilt coke on the keyboard, the keyboard is now malfunctioning with wrong keys appearing on screen and some not working at all. Im pretty sure I will have to bring it in...


The keyboard is fixable depending on the amount of coke spilted on it and how long it took before removing the coke but it can be fixed. It won't cost nothing much because is just taking out the keys and spraying the board itself so the coke particules be remove throughly. Im sure its least that $40-$50. Depending on the specialist you carry it to.

Some Keys are not working


There are two reasons you may need to clean a keyboard: the slow accumulation of gunk, and keyboard emergencies such as dumping a cup of coffee on your keys.

If you dump liquid on your keyboard, shut down your computer immediately, disconnect the keyboard, run it over to the sink, and turn it upside down to drain. If you spilled a sticky liquid, such as Coke on the keyboard, you can squirt water on the upside-down keyboard to rinse it, says Mike Nadelman of computer-repair.com. Don’t submerge the keyboard in water; let it dry upside down.

Compressed air is the keyboard cleaner’s best friend, and it’s the quickest and easiest way to get dust and hair out of a keyboard. I started by disconnecting the keyboard, carrying it over to a clean surface, and giving the keyboard a few good zaps with the cold gas. I kept hitting the keyboard with the compressed air pretty often throughout the cleaning process.

To cope with stained keys and the hairs trapped under the plastic, though, start popping keys off. Keyboard manufacturers don’t recommend popping off keys, but it’s generally harmless if you handle the keys gently. Stick two plastic knives under opposite sides of a key and pry upward, exerting equal force on both sides. The key is guaranteed to fly off across the room, but that’s how you do the job without breaking the key or the switch. Once keys are off, they’re actually washable. Rub stains with a wet cotton swab dunked in soapy water, which does the trick for most messes. Save the alcohol for truly stubborn gunk, because it can damage the ink on the keys, and never, ever, ever use ammonia-based solvents such as Windex.

At first, avoid the big keys, such as the Spacebar, SHIFT, TAB, BACKSPACE, CAPS LOCK, and ENTER. Those keys may be loaded with springs or hinges that make them difficult to remove or replace.

If your keys feel sticky or are grinding, a drop of a light machine oil, such as WD-40, placed in the center of where the key strikes the keyboard, on the hinge, or on the spring (if your key has one) should do the trick, Nadelman told me.

As you remove keys, you’ll need to remember where to put them. Some people make diagrams or put them on the table in the exact order they were in on the keyboard.
