I recently spilled a little coffee onto my laptop. my down arrow eventually became stuck in the on position. After a few reboots that stopped but now the down key doesn't work at all. When booting up now i get a few beeps on startup. Any ideas? Thank You

Try pressing F7 [ it should work] else it sounds like your ALT key is stuck in the down position. Reboot your computer and see if there is some built-in diagnostics. If there is, then there might be a keyboard diagnostic test you can run.

Consult ASUS's website for instructions on exactly how to remove the RAM, but usually there's a little panel on the underside of your laptop with one or two screws, remove it & look for the RAM. Pull it out, wait 20 seconds or so, put it in, reboot. See if that helps.
Laptop keyboard are semi-sealed circuit boards. This means that liquid can get into the contacts and can not be cleaned. Depending on how much liquid was spilled on the keyboard chances are that the liquid has seeped around the edges of the keyboard and down onto the mainboard of the laptop. My first suggestion would be to keep the laptop turned off until you can remove the keyboard and check for liquid damage to the mainboard. If there is no damage to the mainboard I would suggest buying a new keyboard before turning the computer back on as any shorts caused by the liquid damage on the keyboard can cause damage to the keyboard controller circuit on the mainboard.
First thing I would do is make sure the keys aren't stuck, a little canned compressed air blown underneath is good to clear out any debris that may be stuck under the keys, as long as you haven't had any spills recently you shouldn't have any problems, however sometimes keyboards do short and this could be the problem, but without a visual diagnosis, it would be hard to say.
