Question about Toshiba P000171240 Keyboard
I tried doing a System Restore to about 10 days ago and it went wild. The cursor was blinking at the top left-hand side of the screen and it was making a loud beeping sound. The restore did not complete.
I don't give up easily so I attempted to boot up...again the screen goes black as the cursor blinks at the top left-hand corner of the screen...and it makes a loud beeping sound. I have to hit one of the "F" keys to get it started.
I have also lost use of a couple of letters on the left-hand side of the keyboard.
Other than that, it appears my files are in tact as our the programs. Can this be remedied? If so, how??
Can this be remedied?
It depends on how damaged the keyboard is. Electronics get very touchy about such things. If you let it dry it may work, but there may be some circuitry damage. You may need to seek professional repair if the board doesn't start working. Also, you could get a new keyboard for it and install it yourself. Until you do this go get a desktop keyboard and that should get you by. Keep an eye out for other problems, the coffee may have gone deeper into the laptop and may have gotten onto the motherboard. Your files should not be in danger anymore, because it is somewhat hard for liquid to get into a hard drive (unless it causes a surge).
