Question about Acer Aspire 3600, 5030, 5500 Keyboard KB.A3502.002

*laptop* mouse and keyboard not working.

So I spilt beer on my *laptop* keyboard and then about 5 keys wernt working, then after simply washing and taking off those keys they still didnt work, so I tried to take the computer apart so I could wash down the whole thing, couldnt even really get it apart but this little filament thing slipped out but I managed to get it back in place. Anywho now my keyboard and mouse do not work at all, which I believe happened as I was opening up my computer, what could be gone wrong and are there any experts out there who can deal with this kind of thing or should I just start looking at exturnal keyboards and mouses and how would I go about installing them if I cant get onto my account? (I have an acer 3600)

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.

HOw to Clean your keyobard effectively


Keyboard cleaningIf you're trying to clean a laptop keyboard see document CH000780 for additional help and information. All of the below information applies to standard desktop computer keyboards.
Why? Dirt, dust and hair can build up causing the keyboard to not function properly.
Procedure: Many people clean the keyboard by turning it upside down and shaking. A more effective method is to use compressed air. Compressed air is pressurized air contained in a can with a very long nozzle. Simply aim the air between the keys and blow away all of the dust and debris that has gathered there. A vacuum cleaner can also be used, but make sure the keyboard doesn't have loose "pop off" keys that could possibly be sucked up by the vacuum.
Why? If the keyboard has anything spilt into it (ie: pop, cola, Pepsi, Coke, beer, wine, coffee, milk, etc.), not taking the proper steps can cause the keyboard to be destroyed.
Procedure: Below are a few recommendations to help prevent a keyboard from becoming bad once a substance has been spilt within it.
If anything is spilt onto the keyboard turn the computer off immediately. Once the computer is turned off, quickly flip the keyboard over helping to prevent the substance from penetrating circuits. While the keyboard is upside down, shake the keyboard over a surface you do not mind getting wet or that can be cleaned up later. While still upside down, use a cloth to help clean out what can be reached. After you you have cleaned the keyboard to the best of your ability leave the keyboard upside down for at least one night allowing it to dry.
If a keyboard does not work after trying it again later it is recommended that it be replaced. If the keyboard works but some of the keys are sticky or cannot be pressed in you can attempt to do additional cleaning in attempt to resolve the issue. Unfortunately many times when any sticky substance such as a non-diet pop is spilt directly onto the keyboard it's usually a loss unless you plan on spending dozens of hours attempting to clean each key.
Why? A keyboard that is used by multiple people, such as students or different employees, may need to be disinfected to help the spread of germs.
Procedure: Turn off the computer. Spray a disinfectant onto a cloth or damp a cloth with alcohol and rub each of the keys on the keyboard. As mentioned in our general cleaning tips, never spray any type of liquid onto the keyboard.

Keyboard sticks .and also the mouse will jump into another


hi friend,
Erratic Mouse
  1. The solution for an erratic mouse involves going into the registry on Windows. Backup your registry files. Never make changes to the registry without doing this. Go back into the registry. Go to the editor. Locate the key phrase that reads: hkcu---control panel---mouse. Delete this line from the registry. Close the registry editor. Shut down your laptop. Wait for 5 minutes. Reboot your laptop. Windows will create a new registry key for you. This should solve any erratic mouse problems.
  2. Mouse Not Found on Laptop Boot Up
  3. The laptop mouse is plugged in. You boot up your PC. The mouse isn't found. Chances are the mouse cable came slightly unplugged. Unplug the mouse. Re-plug the mouse into the laptop port. The laptop should recognize the mouse. Reboot the laptop if it is still not working after you check the cable.
  4. Mouse Moving Slowly
  5. A laptop mouse that is moving slowly is probably dirty. This type of equipment is prone to collecting dust and dirt. It's like a magnet for dirt. The solution is to clean the laptop mouse. Unplug the laptop mouse from the computer. Remove dirt particles from the optical mouse with a pair of tweezers. Make certain the eye area is clear. A small piece of debris can cause an optical mouse to move slowly. Remove the ball from the mouse, for a standard mouse. Wipe the ball with rubbing alcohol. Wipe the inside of the mouse with a dry cotton swab. Remove all debris and dirt. Replace the ball.
  6. General Mouse Tips
  7. Clean the work area where you will use your laptop mouse. This will reduce the amount of dirt that collects in the mouse.

    Work in areas that don't have high traffic for pets. Sitting with your pet cat or dog in your lap and using your laptop is not a good idea. The laptop mouse will attract and catch pet hair and dander, requiring you to clean it more frequently.

    Wash your hands prior to using your laptop or your laptop mouse. This will keep the equipment cleaner to make it last longer. Less maintenance will be required for both the laptop and the laptop mouse.
jQuery('.article ol .image').each(function(i,e){ var $this = jQuery(this); $this.find('img').error(function(){ jQuery(this).remove(); $this.remove(); }); }); instructions for sticky keyboard: Step 1 Soak up spills immediately after they occur. This not only reduces the risk of damage, it prevents much of the fluid from spreading beneath the keys. Use a towel, cloth or anything else you have handy at the moment.
  • Step 2 Unplug the keyboard from the computer or disconnect the power supply if you are using a laptop keyboard. Make certain nothing else is connected to the keyboard and unplug any USB devices.
  • Step 3 Pop the keys off your keyboard using a dull knife or flathead screwdriver. Do this slowly and carefully to avoid damaging the keys or the keyboard.
  • Step 4 Place the keys in a bowl full of warm soapy water, and let them soak for 20 to 30 minutes. Dish detergent is effective at removing dirt, oil and stickiness.
  • Step 5 Use a damp, lint-free cloth to wipe the large areas of the keyboard. A cotton swab can be used in smaller spaces and around the edge of the keyboard.
  • Step 6 Set the keyboard aside, upside down, on a towel and leave it to dry for several hours. This will also allow any trapped fluid inside the keyboard to drain out.
  • Step 7 Wash off any remaining dirt, oil or debris from the keys. Use a cotton swab to clean inside of each key, if necessary. Rinse the keys very well with warm water and set them on a towel to dry.
  • Step 8 Replace the keys once the keyboard and keys are fully dry. If your keyboard is still sticky, fluid likely leaked deep inside the keyboard. You can attempt to clean the internal part of the keyboard by yourself, but this will void the warranty and risk further damage. Either purchase a new keyboard or send yours to the manufacturer for repair.
  • jQuery('.article ol .image').each(function(i,e){ var $this = jQuery(this); $this.find('img').error(function(){ jQuery(this).remove(); $this.remove(); }); }); Tips & Warnings
    • Using a can of pressurized air to clean your keyboard will remove any loose dirt and debris but will not get rid of stickiness or oil residue. Take a photo of your keyboard before removing the keys to make replacement easier.

    Cannot type certain letters


    Hi,

    Verify that the key is not working in more than one application. It is possible that some keys may not be used in all programs. This generally always applies to the Function keys F1 through F12. If not all keys are working in all programs and you have Windows, attempt to boot the computer to a MS-DOS prompt or Safe Mode and test the keyboard in DOS.

    If it appears that a substance has been spilt into the computer.

    If any type of liquid has been spilt within the keyboard you can attempt to clean it . however, because of the dramatic decrease of cost with computer keyboards, it is recommended that you simply replace the keyboard to help prevent frustration and possibility of failure again in the future.

    Thanks,
    CF

    Keyboard issues


    Try reseating the notebook keyboard into its slot properly.

    If that doesn't work any certain keys are only working before you get into windows then that tells me the kids may have spilt liquid onto the keyboad. As far as the usb ports recognizing an external keyaboard and an external mouse. it should be able to do that.

    If the usb ports are acting funky then the kids may have spilt water onto the keyboard and the liquid fell into the motherboard. Try going into the BIOS and resetting defaults and see if that makes a difference as well and if it doesn't then the keyboard and motherboard may be faulty.

    If you need any more help, let me know and I'll help you further.

    Viewsonic Tablet PC keyboard issue.


    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!
