No, there arn't any tricks for keeping your keyboard free from dust,coffee spills,crumbs,etc.
Extra caution is always a good remedy.
If you have prob. with keyboard,blow out with compressed air can.Buy from computer shop.
Also turn laptop over & tap lightly to dislodge any foreign material that may be wedged between keys & pad.

Tips on Repairing Laptop Keyboard Keys


When you go shopping for a laptop keyboard replacement, it is good to use a parts locator tool. This type of tool makes users to enter their laptop's model number to see exactly what replacement parts are available for it. This ensures compatibility and avoids the hassle of returns and exchanges. The most amazing thing you are going to get is the Dell keyboard. There are several various ways you can repair a damaged laptop keyboard as long as you know what the problem is. Now, there is a step-by-step guide for you how to make your Laptop keyboard, like Dell keyboard work well as it did when you first bought your laptop.

Tip1: The Easiest Way to Fix the Keys
Buy a can of compressed air and spray it on the keyboard if your keys are sticking together. This is the easiest thing you can do to fix the keys on your keyboard. It doesn’t work for all problems, but it’s a good place to start. Make sure you get the air down inside the keys to clean out any debris, hair or food that may have gotten caught in there.

Tip2: Replace a New Keyboard
Replace the inside of the keyboard with a new piece. One of the major problems with Dell keyboards is that the plastic pieces holding the keys in place become loose or broken. You can find a cheap keyboard from Papatek.com or an electronics store. Simply take apart the new keyboard, pull the keys off your keyboard, lay the plastic piece on top and replace your keys.

Tip3: Solve Fall Off Keys
Use a small dab of super glue to replace keys that have fallen off. Dell laptops often have keys that fall off, especially as the computer ages or is used quite frequently. Place a small dab of glue directly on the round part that holds the key in place and lightly press the key down. When the glue dries, you’ll be able to use your laptop again.

Tip4: About the Retainer
Remove any problem keys from your keyboard and look at the plastic retainers. At times these retainers can become broken, damaged or simply fall off. Carefully pull off the retainer, clean it off with some compressed air and snap it back into place. Then put the key back into the slot and everything should work fine.

Buy Compatible brands Laptop Keyboard from Papatek.com, who offers Compatible all brands Keyboard wholesale, like Dell, Acer, etc with best price, 6 month warranty, and shipped fast from USA!

Soapy water spilled on acer keyboard. Now won't key


More then likely you will have to replace the keyboard, if none of the key work anymore since you spilled water on it. If you need a new keyboard you should be able to order one from acer but that will be more expensive you could try getting on from eBay just be careful from eBay from were you buy it from. If you do end up buy a new one they are really easy to take off and put the new one on just make sure you have a really tiny flat head if you could put the model of the laptop and how old it is and I could see put a walk through on how to replace your keyboard.

Acer Aspire 5610 - one key does not work


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.
