Milligrams in milliliters how many mg equal how many ml

Milligram is a unit of mass (or weight), milliliter is a unit of volume.

One milliliter of water weights 1000 milligrams. One milliliter of gold weighs nearly 20,000 milligrams. For cough syrup, just pretend it's water and use the 1000 number.

You can repair any keyboard problems by taking it apart. Find the plastic mats with the exposed electrical contacts and look for food dirt, sugar syrups etc. Using a little water and a toothbrush clean and rinse the food covered areas and pat dry. Leave it to dry for an hour. Try putting it back together and see if it works. If not.... then take the offending letters and look for where the carbon paint touches those contacts and either repaint with carbon paint (available from a quality electronic supply) or just use crazy glue gel and glue little foil pieces to each carbon painted spot that is acting up. This works for remote controls too.

First thing I would ask is this. Was anything spilled on the key board? I had a situation similar to this and I found that my son spilled a Sprite and wiped it up but didn't tell me about it. One way to check this is to hook an aftermarket keyboard that runs off your USB2 port and see if the keys work correctly that way. If they do, I would suspect that something was spilled into your laptop keyboard.
