Something may have come unplugged. check for loose wires/cable. if that doesn't work make sure the laptop is assembled correctly and tightly as it may have an interlock switch

Couple of key on my labtop samsung rf510 doesn't work


You could remove and try to clean with isopropyl alcohol or Electronics Contact Cleaner spray. Of course, remove power, battery, use ESD protection.

Well if you spilled milk on it there is only one thing to do: take apart, wash, wait for it dry, and hope the best.
Find all the screws on the bottom (some might be under stickers or the rubber pads), unscrew them all, and take apart the case. Iside you should find a small panel and a double layered foilage thingy, with printed tracks on it. Remove the small panel and wash everything else with warm tap water. Dry it with a towel and wait for it to dry completely. Then put back together and try it out.
There's not much you can loose this way, if this doesn't work you'll have to buy a new keyboard anyway.
Good luck!

After liquid spill the laptop has to be disassemble and the motherboard inspected for liquid damage. In some cases cleaning the motherboard might fix the laptop.

My return key is not functioning on my apple keyboard.


Buy a new keyboard. They are cheap. One possible solution is to allow the keyboard to thoroughly dry and try it. You can pry up the key and look and see if it needs to be dusted out with some air, or cleaned of whatever was spilled on it. Perhaps alcohol on a Qtip on the moving parts. Not sure what "something" splashed on it. Root beer? Water? Big difference. I would visually inspect, try to dust, then clean with alcohol. Let it dry thoroughly and give it a shot. Short course, buy a new monitor. Good luck.

Spilled onto Acer Aspire laptop


I suggest you download for $6 the service manual for your laptop here

You take it appart and clean everything electronic board component side and wired side with alcool (not beer, something like 90%), you wash the plastics, and build everything back together.
Before pushing the power button, pray a little bit ;)

Hi. I spilled coffee on keyboard ACER 9410 laptop. Now a couple of the keys do not work and screen jumps when I hit some keys on right side of keyboard. Can I replace the keyboard to fix the problem and...


I did the same thing. Here's what I did:
Took whole thing apart. Cleaned any coffee with q-tips dipped in water / paper towels. Removed the keyboard. Ran it through the dishwasher with no soap in it and heated dryer off of course.
I let it dry for a day and was bummed that now the whole keyboard stopped working. Well then 4 days later to my surprise / delight.. the whole thing started working again. New keyboards on ebay were also very reasonable. But mine still works perfectly after the dishwasher cleaning.

I hate to say this but it is more than likely shorted out. Water and electrical componets dont like each other. The best thing i can say if your up to it take it appart and clean it. If your lucky it just might boot up.
