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
cheers

Coffee on key board


Hey,

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 www.ebay.com see if you can find one for your model.


Let me know if you need anything else.


Thanks,
Ekse

Toshiba R100 keyboard not working


I did the same some two years ago, with the R100 on. I switched everything off, dismounted the computer body (not the screen)up to the last screw, and dried that sweet coffee from everywhere where I found it. Mostly this was the keyboard and mouse. The motherboard is luckily protected by some plastic sheet.

Regarding the keyboard, after disconnecting it from the motherboard, I washed it completely under flowing water and then let it dry for several days. In the meantime, I used a USB one. Since then, I used the same keyboard for two years until now, when it died, apparently rather from some motherboard-related reason than water. So I think - you may get a new keyboard, but if youre lucky, you may as well revive this old one.

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.

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.

KEY BORAD


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.
