Try a restart.
if that dosnt help
take it to a tech and they should be able to fix it
my guess would be that the signal from the motherboard
is not getting to the keyboard
because of the coffie

Hi. I accidentally spilled coffee on my Asus EEE PC 1000H Laptop. Is it true that its keyboard is waterproof? If so/not, what should I do to avoid damaging it permanently? I've been using it for 2 hours...

When this happens, you should fully disassemble the netbook & thoroughly inspect its inside. Look for any traces of liquid on the circuit boards & on other components. On circuit boards, liquid damage appears in the form of whitish traces. These needs to be wiped off. This can be done using a tooth brush moistened with few drops of hand sanitizer liquid.
Check all internal connectors & make sure that no liquid seeped into them. Dry them if needed.
When you are done, re-assemble back the netbook.
If the liquid fell on the keyboard & you found out that the keyboard is no longer working, then you will have to replace the keyboard.

Hi my pc 3edc keys are dosnt work i changed new key board weeks later again same porblem


I would like to know whether it is HP branded part no. that you have changed. Because if it is HP keyboard then you can replace it with HP.

If not then I need the product no. of your notebook so I can find the correct part no. for keyboard for your notebook.

You can also purchase single keys from below website if only those 3 keys are not working instead of buying a complete keyboard.

I hope this will help. Please revert for clarification.

Drop coffee on the keyboard, and don't have power

This has happened to me ... with a friend's computer nonetheless!!! Unplugged the laptop right away (including the battery) so as not to cause more damage. The newer laptops I found out come with a spill guard under the keyboard to protect for these kinds of accidents. I wiped up as much as I could with paper towels and then I flipped it over and let it dry ... and waited ... and waited ... I waited until the end of the day because I wanted to make sure everything was dry before plugging it back in. It worked. I cleaned the keys off with a damp cloth. The keys sticked a little bit at the beginning but it's been a year and everything is still fine. :)

Coffee on key board


You need to replace the keyboard. Turn the laptop off. Dry the keyboard. fully. Hopefully the coffee is only on the keyboard and there wasn't enough coffee to get inside the computer.

So if after drying the keyboard completely it still doesn't function.
You need to get a replacement keyboard.

I just bought one from ebay few weeks ago see if you can find one for your model.

Let me know if you need anything else.

Your Keyboard is most likely to be screwed. A drop of coffee is enough to damage it. You will have to replace the keyboard. cleaning will work onlly if something is obstructing you from pressing the keys.

The keyboard should be removed and contacts and connectors cleaned with circuit cleaning solution. If keyboard is still defective after treatment it must be replaced. Keyboard is not an expensive part, it costs $60.
I suggest having the job done by a qualified repairman.
