Based on the information you have provided, it seems that the issue is due to a liquid damage.
For such issues, it would be better to get the Unit examined at the Service Center.

Try cleaning with q-tip and alcohol otherwise you will probably need to replace the keypad

Tip

Spilled liquid on Keyboard!


1. Purchase plastic keyboard cover. 2. Keep coffee etc. anywhere not near keyboard.

For spill, unplug keyboard. If non sugar liquid, invert keyboard, shake or tap gently. Wipe with lent free absorbent cloth while still inverted. If soda or coffee with sugar, pour 1/4 cup of clear clean (distilled the best) water onto keyboard (yes), Then invert. Let dry a minimum of several hours still inverted. I cheat with a hairdryer on low 6-12 inches. After keyboard is completely dry (and cool). Plug in after turning computer off, restart, test all keys, including shift, option etc. If keys miss or don't work buy new keyboard and cover! Aloha, Cliff

I spilled coffee in my compaq laptop./ The computer works and will turn on however the keys are sticking. so I cant type a sentence. Is there a qucik fix for this>


take your laptop to the expert who can deal with laptop well.don't try to clean the keyboard yourself because it is easy to remove the keys from the keyboard but then you won't be able to fix them on the keyboard properly. If you still try to remove the keys you can damage the keyboard's key sensors.

Some of the keys work and a few just dont ....I am not sure if the keys are broken....stuck or if my laptop has been dropped or something.It's just not working right


Did someone (not you, of course) spill something (sugar in coffee, tea, cocoa, soft-drink, beer) onto the keyboard? If so, as the liquid dries, the sugar dries up, and gums-up the works.

Get a qualified technician to replace the keyboard.

KEY BORAD


The keyboard should be removed and contacts and connectors cleaned with circuit cleaning solution. If keyboard is still defective after treatment it must be replaced. Keyboard is not an expensive part, it costs $60.
I suggest having the job done by a qualified repairman.

Some Keys are not working


There are two reasons you may need to clean a keyboard: the slow accumulation of gunk, and keyboard emergencies such as dumping a cup of coffee on your keys.

If you dump liquid on your keyboard, shut down your computer immediately, disconnect the keyboard, run it over to the sink, and turn it upside down to drain. If you spilled a sticky liquid, such as Coke on the keyboard, you can squirt water on the upside-down keyboard to rinse it, says Mike Nadelman of computer-repair.com. Don’t submerge the keyboard in water; let it dry upside down.

Compressed air is the keyboard cleaner’s best friend, and it’s the quickest and easiest way to get dust and hair out of a keyboard. I started by disconnecting the keyboard, carrying it over to a clean surface, and giving the keyboard a few good zaps with the cold gas. I kept hitting the keyboard with the compressed air pretty often throughout the cleaning process.

To cope with stained keys and the hairs trapped under the plastic, though, start popping keys off. Keyboard manufacturers don’t recommend popping off keys, but it’s generally harmless if you handle the keys gently. Stick two plastic knives under opposite sides of a key and pry upward, exerting equal force on both sides. The key is guaranteed to fly off across the room, but that’s how you do the job without breaking the key or the switch. Once keys are off, they’re actually washable. Rub stains with a wet cotton swab dunked in soapy water, which does the trick for most messes. Save the alcohol for truly stubborn gunk, because it can damage the ink on the keys, and never, ever, ever use ammonia-based solvents such as Windex.

At first, avoid the big keys, such as the Spacebar, SHIFT, TAB, BACKSPACE, CAPS LOCK, and ENTER. Those keys may be loaded with springs or hinges that make them difficult to remove or replace.

If your keys feel sticky or are grinding, a drop of a light machine oil, such as WD-40, placed in the center of where the key strikes the keyboard, on the hinge, or on the spring (if your key has one) should do the trick, Nadelman told me.

As you remove keys, you’ll need to remember where to put them. Some people make diagrams or put them on the table in the exact order they were in on the keyboard.
