Have a Gateway M285e laptop that the letter 'e' on the keyboard doesn't function. Will cleaning the keyboard resolve this issue? Thanks


It is possible that there is something sticky keeping the "e" key form working. Removing the key and cleaning around it carefully with alcohol or alcohol water 50/50 or 100% mix might free it up. Use Que-tips or something like that. try to clean around it first. If that does not work try gently lifting up on the key with a small screw driver or knife. You may hear a small pop. this could go either way for you good or bad, so be car full. then try cleaning around the spot ware the key was, gently replace the key.
You may also consider plugging in a cheep $10.00 key board and see if this works. I spilled a large drink in min and needed to use an auxiliary key board until I replaced the computer.

Sticky buttons


Lifting it up may break the buttons.... Can you try using cotton bud and try cleaning it; if it can enter without forcing it; dip it in a methylated spirit and apply it gently.

I spilt drink on my laptop and da key are sticky how do I get them unstick


You can use the cleaner that cleans floppy disk drives but I prefer Mr Muscle Glass Cleaner and a Microfibre cloth. Spray on the cloth not the keyboard, wipe over and allow to evaporate. It's also brilliant on LCD displays with not ill effects, and no streaks, and no wiping after.

Sticking keyboard keys grrrrr no drink or anything


Get a can of compressed air and see if blowing on the keyboard will help. If not then Try a keyboard cleaning kit:

As for cleaning a laptop computer keybord, I would use a can for compressed air, q-tips, and soapy water. I would be careful about getting the laptop too wet as water can seep into the computer. Hope this helps!!


If this was helpful please rate with a 4 thumbs up!! Thanks for using fixya.com!!

Keys are sticking the keyboard. Can i clean underneath the keys?


Depending upon how sticky the keys are, it might be easier to buy a cheap replacement keyboard.  Trust me, it takes a whole lot of patience and a steady hand to take apart the keyboard key by key and then put it back together.

Tea spilt on Laptop


If you can put up with the sticky keys and they still work then it is OK.
Otherwise you need to replace the keyboard.

Laptop keyboard needs cleaning


I had a client with that problem--we removed the keyboard and tried to clean it. Turns out that our cleaning job was less than perfect because the laptop keyboard is mostly sealed. There was liquid that seeped down onto the motherboard as well--that we could clean up. The long and short of is--you will probably need to replace the keyboard. Of course, with nothing to lose, you could wash the keyboard and let it dry out thoroughly, plug it in, and see if it works. The key here would be the thorough drying. If you decide to try this chancy procedure, don't dry it with high heat. A hair dryer set on low might be the answer.
