How long ago did this happen?
Remove the power adapter and the battery.
Remove any removable covers from the bottom of the laptop and look for any signs of liquid. Leave the covers off for a couple of days to allow any liquid or moisture to dry up.

Press and hold in the power button for up to 60 seconds to discharge the laptop.

When you are sure there is no more moisture present try starting the laptop.

If it still won't turn on something may have shorted out during the spill and you will probably have to take it to a repair shop.

    The cost will depend on what they find wrong with it. If the motherboard shorted you're probably better off just getting a new laptop.

My keybord type is incorrect word

Check the wiring connector of your keyboard. If your unit is lap top your should open the unit to clean the connectors but before you do anything in your unit be sure to turn it off before touching anything. Check the flex of the lap top if there is no loose or cut wiring.
If you are using a Disktop computer check the cable of your keyboard and open your keyboard then inside you will see a small printed circuit board with a electronic component within this board cut the cable in 10 inches then connect it again in the PCB using a soldering iron.

Spilt tea keyboard not working

Sorry, but if it was tea instead of plain water, your keyboard is F***ED. what you CAN try is removing all the keys, crossing your fingers, and covering it in rice(uncooked). Leave it like that overnight, but i wouldn't get my hopes up. also, be sure you remove the battery if it is wireless.

I just bought a philips mp3 player and my lab top wont pick it up or download music or read it

Does it comes with any additional software?

If not first navigate on "My computer" If you see your MP3 there right click and select explore. Open all the folders and try to see where the music is sorored.

Do not change anything just find the root for the music. Paste your music in there.

If the Mp3 is not recognized. Try to see if on the bottom menu bad to you right you can see a green arrow. If you double click and try to see of your USB appears on the list of USB devices.

Most of the times a driver may be missing on your lap top. Try to go to philips support page and look for drives to down load.

Hope this helps

My dell studio 1735 will not turn on

You mean you have no display in your monitor?If it is the problem. Then your computer has something wrong with it. Did it beep several times while you turn your computer on?There are different types of beeps and it gives different meanings. I suggest it is better to take your computer into a service center and have it check by a qualified technician. Comments please for further assistance. Thank you..:-)
