Sorry about your keyboard problems.

1. On your base unit, you will find this plastic piece below. Where I have marked a X, you will find 2 screws which need to be removed.
3. After you have removed these two screws, open the cover and lift the cover gently upwards. Removing it from unit.


If you look behind unit with cover opened, you will see 2 screws, ( one on each side.) The Plastic face plate has a 2 Ears the wrap around and can be clearly seen with cover opened.



Now, you will see 3 screws at to top of the KeyBoard. Shown below & marked by a X

4. Remove the 3 screws and carefully lift the keyboard upward at the screw points.
5. Once the keyboard is fairly loose, fold it over and allow it to lay on the armrest.
6. At this point, you will see the Ribbon cable where the Keyboard makes its connection.
Carefully lift the compression flange upward and remove the cable.

Enjoy your new keyboard, invest in a cover, as once you have leaked any wet material past the keyboard, its all over.

Thank you.

Open laptop and lay on heavy towels with the keyboard facing down, remove charger and main battery, most of the tea should drain out in this position, contact a service centre to assess the motherboard, sooner the better.

Replacing Power Button Circuit Card on Gateway W730 K8X Laptop


The instructions for replacing the keyboard include the cover you have to remove to replace the power button pcb. The power button pcb is attached to the bottom of the bezel that covers the hinges/button array. In a nutshell you just remove the 2 screws indicated in the instructions, pry the hinge covers up a bit, then gently pry the bezel up from the bottom. remove the ribbon cable, pull back the small piece of tape, remove the three small screws holding the pcb on, and remove it from the spring clips.

You could try removing the keys out of the keyboard and cleaning it with a damp cloth and a can of compressed air. If the tea hit the circuitry of the board though you may have to get a new one.
