Question about HP Pavilion dv1000 Notebook
Not only do most of these types of drinks contain sugar, but most contain acids, also. If not cleaned off, it will eventually cause corrosion and further troubles on down the road.
If I were trying to recover from this type of situation (Don't ask me how I know! Grin!) I would completely dissassemble the laptop. Then I would put just a bit of dish soap in some warm water. Not enough to really make any suds, just enough to act as a surfactant.
I would recommend moving through these processes reasonably quickly as you don't really want to soak things, you just want to get things clean. I would immerse the keyboard in this solution and use a soft, long bristled brush ( a 1" paint brush would work), and carefully brush down between all of the keys. While still in the solution, press each key several times to work the sugars out. Then I would put the keyboard in clear warm water and do the same thing. This would be followed by shaking the water out of the keyboard assembly, rinsing the assembly with 90% alcohol, shaking the alcohol out and setting aside to air dry.
I would use the same procedure for the system board but would be even more gentle and careful.
Using the same procedure, I would continue by cleaning out the inside of the case and any connectors or assemblies that may have gotten any of the drink in them.
After allowing enough time for everything to dry, reassemble.

Try the following guide (For the Keys)
There are no guides from HP for the keys available for the DV1000 but this guide will be more than enough to help you through this one in order to remove them. Its completely the same principle
In order to reach the inside of the laptop you definetely need the User/Service Manual of the Laptop with instructions on how to take it apart, which is found here:
As i see it beneath the keyboard the IC's of the laptop (motherbard's/memory/wifi/ sound card etc) should be cleaned with clear alcochol or near clear (95% and upwards) with a soft brush (ESD if possible)
Then let it dry either (If you do your previous method take it easy though,not to close, as some chips at temps >85 degrees celcius could be damaged.)
Please remember to ground yourself first and if possible wear antistatic gloves to protect the IC's from damage from electrostatic discharge. Again before you do this remember to remove any AC cables and the battery.
Please don’t forget to rate this solution if it was helpful, it keeps us going!
