Question about Computers & Internet
Hi, yesterday I think I spilled some water on my toshiba satellite l300 laptop keyboard. For the hour following the accident the keyboard was working alrite. Later the screen just shows the character "x" typing out incessantly itself in any search box and my word document. I then turn off my laptop.
And later when I switch back on and type on some characters, they are either not coming out at all or give something entirely different (ie. typing 1 gets me 2, and typing w makes the screen rotates, and typing r it is not showing at all). This situation shifts over last night. Sometimes it is the "a" not working, other times it is the "s". What should I do? Thanks.
I don't know how much water you spilled on your keyboard, but you should bring it to some one who can remove the keyboard without damaging the laptop and either first try to give it a good cleaning and try it again or replace it if it won't clear up after the cleaning. Hopefully you didn't get any water in the computer itself because then you have more serious problems coming

A keyboard is nothing more than a collection of small switches under the keys. A liquid will short out between the contacts of the switches and is the same as hitting the key. There are still fluids inside they keyboard circuitry. By using it like this it can short out the keyboard and ruin it. It needs to be taken out and cleaned and dried throughly before it is ruined. (might already be ruined). You can usually find replacement keyboards on places like ebay.com
