Viewsonic Tablet PC keyboard issue.

Recently someone spilt a beer into my tablet pc keyboard, we were using it for our fantasy football league :-). I removed the keyboard and cleaned all of the beer residue from beneath, which wasn't much, but the keyboard now has a key or keys that are stuck. So, I ordered a new keyboard, installed it and I get the same thing. As soon as I press one key the password screen fills and you can hear the beeps like someones leaning on the keyboard. Is it possible the controller is fried for the keyboard? I removed the keyboard and connected an external usb keyboard and it works fine. Thanks in advance for any help. Rich i recently spilt some juice on thekeyboard of my hp pavilion laptop my spacebar barely works and sticks but i dont know where to start to fix this problem the page will scroll all the way down spontaniously and my cursor moves across the page like someone is pressing down on the spacebar i tried popping off the keys but they areattached by something white and i dont want to break anything

Try reseating the cable that connects the keyboard first.

If that doesnt help there may be liquid around the connector and it needs to be cleaned off to keep the circuit from shorting out. You will need to find someone with the appropriate chemicals and may have to take the laptop further apart to clean it all up.

This is why when anyone gets a liquid spill i recommend getting it torn down right away and cleaned up, as it can damage things you cant even see. If the liquid has been in there too long it may not be repairable.

Good luck!

Trying to pair my apple bluetooth keyboard with viewsonic 7 tablet using easy connect

Sorry to hear/read this really.
One thing you've got to know and as a matter of fact acquaint yourself with is this-

Original Apple OS devices, gadgets and equipments DO NOT readily pair or connect with Android OS based devices, gadgets and equipments.

With time, maybe someone can find a way round to resolve this impasse but at the time, its best you save yourself all the aggravations.

Make use of your maplin keyboard instead.

I have a emty slot an i have no vidio an i beleave that the vidio card is gone .but i cant find a service manual to see what goes is a viewsonic pc tablet v1100 got it at pawn shop .the ram is...

There are two slots, one for a pcmcia card and one for a CF memory card. Your video is on-board (built in), you my need to reinstall the operating system (with the 3 restore disks). if you do not have them I can supply them for $20.00.
Before you do this I would recommend that you use a USB floppy to see if it displays in DOS to make sure your video is not dead.
