You ma by able to take the PC apart yourself.I believe most are put together the same way.I am not sure tho.I would start by taking out all the screws from the bottom and then place them in order next to the PC so you can put them back where they go again.I have recently just taken a laptop apart for the first time and it wasn't that hard.Just had to take out allot of screws and remember where they went back in.Once you have the laptop apart you'll see where everything is connected.Just take your time and you'll be fine.Where the keyboard connects to the board is a little tricky.On mine there is a clip that locks.It's long and kind of flat and I couldn't figure out how to lock it or unlock it but I did eventually.

    I took out all the screws I could find but the top cover still wouldn't come off. My on/off switch stopped working (mechanical - no action) but I can't get to it to see what broke.

My wife spilled coffee on her laptop. How can I clean the contacts in the keyboard


Try rubbing alchohal first. If they are too bad you will need to disasemble or replace the keyboard.The keys do come off on a laptop keyboard. But they are an absolute pain to get back together. You will most likely break some of the retainers along the way. I suggest purchasing a replacement keyboard.

It is virtually impossible to fix because you cannot get to the rubber contacts in the keyboard. The best solution is to replace the keyboard.

Enter key not working


If after some time in front of a fan (to dry the keyboard out), the keys still do not work, you will need to replace the keyboard.
Just in case it was more than water (ie. soda pop, energy drink, koolade,. etc with sugarin it). you may need to do more than just replace the keyboard s the connector on the motherboard may have gotten sugar in it as well.

you shouldnt need to disassemble the whole laptop more than likely there will be a couple of screws holding it in on my laptop it had a small cd looking symbol etched into the plastic next to the screw i unscrewed that one and my dvd drive pulled right out

Laptop monitor out afte spill


Could be a few things destroyed something on the motherboard or on one of the wires leading to the screen. if you heard a sizzle take the keyboard off and the wires for the screen are usually right there see if any are burnt and look for puffed up fuses.

Tip for next time if you get an electronic device wet remove battery dry completely before putting battery back in

If this is a brand new laptop it would be still under warranty.
I suggest returning it to the supplier for repair under warranty because if you attempt to repair it you could void your warranty.
You should only attempt repairs after the warranty has expired.

Laptop Cleaning/Repair


That is something that you should not attempt .. Because most likely you will need to replace the keyboard...
If they are just not working because they are Sticking or Stuck, you can repair this by yourself....you can remove the keyboard and clean it, also checking the ribbon cable that goes from the keyboard to the motherboard... look for any burn spots near the keyboard plug connection, chances are that just simply replacing the keyboard would fix it ..
You also will need the entire laptop taken apart to see if the "drink" spilled onto other parts, or worse... the motherboard...
