You need to replace the whole keyboard since the 4 letters is not working at all. You cannot change only 4 letter keys from your laptop.

Note: If machine is under warranty no need to pay for the repairs.

This afternoon my laptop was working fine, then the keyboard started messing up, when I pressed any letter it came up with 4 other letters. Then i pressed '9' once and it continuously typed 9 until I


First thing I would ask is this. Was anything spilled on the key board? I had a situation similar to this and I found that my son spilled a Sprite and wiped it up but didn't tell me about it. One way to check this is to hook an aftermarket keyboard that runs off your USB2 port and see if the keys work correctly that way. If they do, I would suspect that something was spilled into your laptop keyboard.

I have a hp 5070-4221 wireless keyboard I spilled beer on and now it does not work. Can it be repared


Once upon a time coffee was spilled on a wired keyboard and this mechanic I knew took the keyboard out of its case, poured water on it , and let it dry for a day or two.

Then he reinstalled it and it worked!

I am not saying that this solution will work for you, but the Beer may be causing the keyboard buttons not to work.

Good luck on this repair.

When I use the keyboard only some letters work


Replace the keyboard -- it would cost $50 to $100 to "clean" and/or "trouble-shoot" the keyboard.

Try to _NOT_ spill coffee/pop into the replacement keyboard.

Some letters are not working


Keyboards are made with mechanical switches. If most of your keys work, then I would assume that the electronics are still OK and that the issue is with 'sugar coated contacts' caused by dried/semi-dried sweet pop liquid. The best way would be to carefully open the keyboard to get to those sugar coated contacts and clean them with some cleaning white spirit/denatured/medical alcohol. You could alternatively lift the cover for the specific key (which normally clicks on the switch) and pour some cleaning alcohol down the center of the switch to dislodge the sugar. IN ALL CASE, MAKE SURE THAT THE POWER IS OFF AND YOU ARE IN WELL VENTALITED AREA AWAY FROM ANY FIRE SOURCE OR SPARKS! LET THE ALCOHOL EVAPORATE COMPLETELY BEFORE RECONNECTING!

Spilled juice on my H P Pavilion laptop keyboard, keyboard is not working at all. Please help!


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.

Top letters pressed also types the above numbers


Hi there.
After a liquid spill on the keyboard and you have done your best to clean it and the keys still do the same thing, your only option is to replace the keyboard.
I have come across this problem many times, some keyboards you can clean and bring them back to good working order and others you have no choice but to replace.
Liquids like soda or sweet coffee do the worst damage to keyboards.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!!

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.

got backup?
