Suspend the laptop upside down over a sink and see what liquid you can get to dribble out. Please carefully look beneath it to see if any juice got deeper into your laptop.
If it's just on the keyboard, you can gently try to pop a key off. or your best bet is to call in a professional and explain what happened. They are going to want to what exactly was spilled in the keyboard and approximately how much. What liquid was spilled inside makes a difference.

I spilt milk on my samsung laptop I shut the power off and wondering what is the best way to dry it


Most likely when the laptop dries out the milk residue will stop the keyboard keys from working properly. Depending upon how much milk has been spilt the milk may have penetrated to the motherboard and caused more damage.
Place the laptop in a warm area for several days.
If the laptop boots up properly but the some of keyboard keys don't work then a replacement keyboard may fix your problem.
Keyboard replacement maybe available from this WEB site.

I have a gateway keyboard ku-0833 and its working fine but I spilt a little coffee on it and a few of the keys are stiff to push. Is there a way I can clean it, tried using cotton swabs around the keys but...


You can pry out the keys using a butter knife and use rubbing alcohol to clean the underneath.

if the coffee got into the connectors you might be out of luck.

**THE FOLLOWING IS NOT RECOMMENDED**
When i spilt mt dew on my keyboard i took out the battery let it decharge for 5 minutes. I put it in a pan and poured rubbing alcohol on it and let it sit for 5 min. While it was sitting i swished the alcohol around a little bit so it could flow. took it out and let it dry for about 1-2 hours and it worked perfectly. this is orta used as a last resort

As for cleaning a laptop computer keybord, I would use a can for compressed air, q-tips, and soapy water. I would be careful about getting the laptop too wet as water can seep into the computer. Hope this helps!!


If this was helpful please rate with a 4 thumbs up!! Thanks for using fixya.com!!

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.

Some keys not working


I guess all you can do is try dry the water by tipping the laptop upside down (Keyboard face down) and also use a hairdryer or something hot to try and dry it. Dont overheat it!!!

You can try to clean the keys with a cotton swab and alcohol. Just take the key off, carefully, the clean around the key and on the plungerwith the tip of the swab. Good luck.

I spilt my drink on my laptop keyboard...


you can pull the keys out of their sockets and wipe the rubber and plastic holders with a wet cloth. but be very carefull to cloth should not leak, just be wet to dissolve and absorbe the sugar and other stuff that stick the keys. then just insert the keys in the sockets
