Question about Acer Computers & Internet
There are screws accessed from the bottom of your laptop, and in most cases labeled as keyboard, if not, start unscrewing these. Oh, as you begin to remove the keyboard and palm rest do not be too surprised if you hear large sounding snaps, this is normal. Once you begin lifting the top off carefully, you will see a thin mylar ribbon cable or two. You will want to download a users manual on servicing your internal components as there is a specific way to remove these ribbon cables. Usually you squeeze both ends of the female receptacle together and the cable will come loose. Same for reattaching it later. Once, you do have it off however, survey the internal area of your laptop for evidence of the spill and clean it up with 99% or pure alcohol from a hardware store (oh, and of course do this with external power disconnected and the battery out). Next, you may be able to salvage your keyboard by rinsing it down with electronic parts cleaner. It may take more than one can to do this, but you may find that this fixes your stuck keys and you do not have a need to replace it.
