My cat walked across my keyboard,now the sound is not working. sound tests are good but still no there a hot key or something to turn sound on?I tried the keys on the top too still no sound.

Try to go to settings and you will be finding a item called change to default. Hit that and your sound setting will automatically changed back to how you had previously.

Can`t figure out keyboard on acer aspire one, blue numbers and letters etc Karl

blue number etc are functions that are connected to the blue fn button in the left hand corner.
press and hold the blue fn button and at the some time one of the other buttons.
eg volume + or - for volume up and down or the moon shape for hibernate, or the sun to change the screen brightness,antenna button to switch on and of your bluetoot or wifi, or the screen button to switch on and off your external monitor port on the back etc. the blue number are your numeric keypad like on a normal keyboard this can be used in the same way by holding the blue fn button down at the same time.

If you've spilt tea down your laptop you could have shorted something out.

You could try a new keyboard, or take out your old one and see if you can clean it up a bit, and try and clean the tea from inside.
