You may have inadvertently pressed the correct hot keys to change the display around. In the bottom right hand corner of the screen you may have an icon for your graphics. If you click, or right click you can get the properties up. You should be looking for something which refers to screen orientation ie from landscape to portrait or vice versa.

I spilt drink on my laptop and da key are sticky how do I get them unstick


You can use the cleaner that cleans floppy disk drives but I prefer Mr Muscle Glass Cleaner and a Microfibre cloth. Spray on the cloth not the keyboard, wipe over and allow to evaporate. It's also brilliant on LCD displays with not ill effects, and no streaks, and no wiping after.

I spilt tea on the keyboard of my dell netbook, i took the battery out and took the power cable out and dried it all now when i turn it on the screen is fine but it beeps very loudly


The beep is a warning code indicating that there's an error in the start-up process. You'll have to have your laptop serviced from a qualified technician because there may be some damage to the motherboard.

I have a friends laptop, which he spilt a cup of tea over, he wants it repaired, when i got it it would not come on at all, but after a few hours of playing about with it, i got it to boot up into...


First thing is to not try powering the laptop on after the liquid fell on it. Next, you should remove the battery off the laptop immediately. When this is done, you should fully disassemble the laptop & thoroughly inspect its inside. Look for any traces of liquid on the circuit boards & on other components. On circuit boards, liquid damage appears in the form of whitish traces. These needs to be wiped off. This can be done using a tooth brush moistened with few drops of hand sanitizer liquid.
Check all internal connectors & make sure that no liquid seeped into them. Dry them if needed.
Check the hard drive's connector to the motherboard for any liquid damage & clean it.
When you are done, re-assemble back the laptop.
If the liquid fell on the keyboard & you found out that the keyboard is no longer working, then you will have to replace the keyboard.

Repair manual for HP Pavilion dv6 1245 dx


Go to hp.com. Click on support and drivers tab. Select "See Support & Troubleshooting Information." Enter your laptop model number. dv6-1245dx. Click on "GO". See: "What Type Of Support Do You Need?" Choose MANUALS. Scroll down the page and select "HP PAVILION DV6 ENTERTAINMENT PC - MAINTENANCE AND SERVICE GUIDE". Download that PDF format. It is relatively easy to get to the ribbon cable that connects the touchpad to the motherboard. It is connected via a ZIF connector. I had a dv1331se and the touchpad stopped working. I just reseated the cable in the connector and all was well. Hope your solution is as easy as mine was. You'll have to remove the trimplate just in front of the keyboard. Be careful with the connectors there. The manual is well laid out and the diagrams easy to follow. Good luck. HP Pavilion dv6 Entertainment PC - Maintenance and Service Guide

Tea spilt on Laptop


If you can put up with the sticky keys and they still work then it is OK.
Otherwise you need to replace the keyboard.

Tea spilt ok Thinkpad Keyboard


I'm sorry, but there are no alternatives, and you may have bigger issues than just the keyboard. If the tea seeped past the keyboard, and onto the motherboard, which is directly bellow the keyboard, then by trying to start it you may have fried the motherboard. You would be surprised how long it takes for a laptop to dry out, 6 hours is not near long enough. You will also want to clean it, the sugar in the tea can cause corrosion of the circuitry on the motherboard. I'm going to recommend that you take it in for a professional diagnostic and cleaning. This way you will know the exact extent of the damage.

My keyboard


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.
