Most likely it needs to be replaced, but there is one last thing you can do.

Since there is no "officially sanctioned" way to get all the sticky gunk out of keyboard, here is a solution I have personally found to work: wash it in the dishwasher. Make sure that you place it in the top tray upside down and tie up the cords so that they don't fall and get stuck in anything. Also be sure to turn off high heat before doing this or you will melt the parts inside. After a wash cycle (No soap!!) take it out and lean it up on its side against a wall in a warm dry place for 48 hours. Do not use a hot dryer! You can also stick it in a box full of uncooked rice too, which will draw every drop of moisture from it. Once completely dry, plug it in and all stickiness should be gone.

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:

Daughter split drink on net book keyboard now not working - is it fixable?


> spilt drink ... is it fixable ?

Yes, of course it is. But, the bill for "parts-and-labour" may exceed the cost of replacing it.

You should be able to extract the disk-drive, and may be able to extract the files from the disk-drive.

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!!

My son has spilt coke on the laptop 1 key not working O


If you spill drinks on a keyboard, something is bound to break, and apparantly only the O key did... The only way to fix it is to get a new keyboard, I'm sorry. I hope this helps, Yannick.

I spilt my drink on my laptop keyboard...


you can pull the keys out of their sockets and wipe the rubber and plastic holders with a wet cloth. but be very carefull to cloth should not leak, just be wet to dissolve and absorbe the sugar and other stuff that stick the keys. then just insert the keys in the sockets
