    I also have this problem, some water got spilled an it touched the far left-hand side of the keyboard. Strangely the following letters work, although some got wet: qwertyuiopasfghjlm and the following numbers work too: 23567890.
    Unfortunately, shift and comma have gone though :(
    I am willing to pay for repairs.
    Does anyone know how I can adjust the brightness? Fn is broken.
    Here is a list of my broken keys:
    1, 4, left-hand shift, d, k, n, b, v, c, x, z, Fn, all arrows and caps lock.
    My laptop is an Acer Aspire series 3000.
    Any advice regarding repairs is gratefully received:

    • Can the damage be repaired?

    • How much should this cost?

    • What would the repairs involve?

    • Can anyone recommend a company to do the repair work?

    • Is there anything I can do myself? (it has been twenty-four hours since the accident happened and it is now half past ten in the morning, GMT, 25/5/09)

Can you damage your esophagus if you drink baking and water too much?

Go to a doctor!!!!!!!!!!! you have chest pain for a reason, it is your bodies way of telling you, you need professional help. If it turns out to be acid reflux, try elevating the head of your bed frame about 4 inches this will allow the contents of your stomach to lie lower while you sleep. you should also not eat 3-4 hours before you go to bed/

How to take apart my h-15 laptop

Do not like your chances of success in your endeavours. Was it switched on when you spilled the liquid in to the keyboard as damage of the short circuiting type is a real possibility.
Usually you need a service manual as every laptop if different in its way of disassembly. Suggest taking somewhere to be repaired but chances of no serious damage are low.
9 years ago I had a daughter poor water over a laptop that had been purchased one week earlier. The guy at the shop advised me it would just need to dry out and after it was dried out the keyboard did not work properly and then the laptop stopped working altogether.

Remove the battery from the laptop
leave in a dry room on its side and leave overnight.
let the water drain out and dry out then try switching it on.
if you get lot of beeping then the keyboard has failed (which can be replaced.)

If you get no lights or sound coming from your laptop hen it probably has died

To save you time and money, it is recommended that you have a proffesional clean your computer, because using water may damage your computer and the company warranty will NOT cover damages done by DIY.
If you go ahead, and decide to clean it yourself, YouTube has many videos that can help you.

How can i remove my laptop keyboard


These instructions will help you to remove and replace keyboards onvarious laptops. I will not be able to cover all models but you’ll getthe idea. Steps for removing and replacing the keyboard are similar formost laptops.
- if your laptop is still covered by the manufacturer’s warranty, do not open the case or you can loose the warranty
- always remove the battery and unplug the AC adapter before you open the laptop case
- if you damage the keyboard connector on the motherboard you’ll have to replace the whole motherboard
- proceed on your own risk

Be careful, on some models the bezel might be connected to themotherboard as it shown on the picture above. If you accidentallypulled the cable, connect it back. It is not necessary to disconnectthe keyboard bezel from the motherboard in order to remove and replacethe keyboard, just put it aside so you can access the keyboard screws.

Use this link below for more instructions.

Good luck!

Laptop keyboard not operational

If you replaced the keyboard with a Dell replacement 1501 keyboard and it still doesn’t work then yes the motherboard will probably have to be replaced. If your son spilled water on the laptop it could clear up after it completely dries. If it was juice, soft drink or sport drink the laptop could develop other issues. The syrup in these kinds of drinks don’t evaporate, they just remain there and accumulate foreign particles like dust, hair, dirt and eventually start to corrode electrical contacts like acid. Similar to the terminal posts on a car battery.

Philips x55p laptop h12y

Just done it myself there are little black lugs which secure the keyboard in place.

Look down on the key board and you will see them at the top edge and sides (above keys esc&F1,F5&F6 and so on), just push them in and the key board will pop out.

Anyone know where I can get a motherboard for this machine?
