I have a sony laptop I spilled coke on keyboard..I cleaned it with isopropyl alcohol and didnt turn it on for turns on but windows wont start only shows the circle of trying to connect pleas

I would have completely taken the laptop apart and washed and dried the keyboard separately and dismantles the keyboard itself to wash the insides of it where the rubber with the carbon paint touches the contacts. I would have avoided isopropyl alcohol. I don't know where to go from here.

Hi, this is molly vang, sorry i can't spaces on my keyboard. The spacerbar is not working and I can't understand what happened. Also, now the backspace is not working good to...

This sounds like a hardware issue. Try using a USB keybord to confirm that it's only your laptop keyboard. If the USB keyboard doesn't work properly, then you should run a virus scan and update your laptop's drivers.

If you've spilled liquid in your pc shut it down immediately, remove the key caps, and clean the domes with Isopropyl Alcohol on a Q-TIP.

If your usb keyboard won't work, and you haven't spilled liquid: Pry the key up and check if your rubber domes are broken. Sometimes keys that are used frequently will break. Try placing a piece of paper on top of the dome, and snap the key back on.

Some keys on my laptop dont work

Trying a desktop keyboard is useful for determining if it is a keyboard problem or a software problem. This usualy happens if some liquid has gotten into the keyboard, but you said thats not possible. Try to boot into bios, the first screen that pops up when you boot, on a toshiba it is usually pressing F1 or Del. then if your Arrow keys don't work there, you need a new keyboard.

Spilled water on keyboard. a few keys don't work

If this problem occurred recently you might still be able to save the keyboard. However, it is a painstaking method of popping out each of the keys that are not working and cleaning them off (preferably with some contact cleaner) and making sure that there is no corrosion trying to form due to the moisture. Be careful when prying up some keys as some keyboards (especially laptop keyboards) are hard to put back if you don't have the right tools or the know how. I suggest looking up keyboard removal techniques based on the brand of your keyboard/laptop.
Good luck...

Keyboard problem: multiple letters when one is pressed

sorry but even a small amount of liquid can work its way under the keys. you could try getting a can of compressed air to dissipate the liquid that has seeped under the keys, if not then you will need a new keyboard or take the keyboard apart

Took spacebar off to clean up a pop spill...metal bar NOT attatch

There might be a metal wire if it is missing, which snaps to the keyboard, you may need a new keyboard.
If you are unsure, you should probably thake it to your local computer repair shop.
Good Luck.

Your Keyboard is most likely to be screwed. A drop of coffee is enough to damage it. You will have to replace the keyboard. cleaning will work onlly if something is obstructing you from pressing the keys.

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 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...
