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.

Acer Aspire 3680 laptop keyboard walked over by cat - now will not let me type - have cursor but no letters appear


Shut down the laptop and remove the battery . Now allow 15 minutes and then replace the battery back to boot again. If the PC does not respond with the keys, it must be checked if the cat had soiled the key pad and there is a short within.

Reset the BIOS to its default settings then restore the Computer to the original factory settings by performing System Recovery using the OEM Recovery Discs set provided by the manufacturer.This will help you decide whether the issue is related to the keyboard or due to inappropriate drivers or utilities.

Letter keys are stuck on numbers don't know how to change them bo


Hold the "Fn" key down while pressing "F9" key, subtitled "Padlock" (!!) - is equivalent to NUM LOCK nomenclature used on most computers. Note - Repeating above resets number pad to ON.

If that doesn't work for you something is malfunctioning as far as I know.
