On a laptop computer, you can just pop the keys off to access the underlying connectivity. Use a q-tip and gently rub the exposed portion of the key. You may need to dip the q-tip in water to remove the liquid. However, if you do use water or some other cleaning agent, make sure your laptop is off before you begin. You will also need to make sure it is fully dry before turning your computer back on. The key will easily snap back into place once you are finished.

Letter does not work on keyboard


You can try using compressed air can to clean the keyboard, maybe that will fix it. But if it's caused by wear and tear or you have spilled some liquid on the keyboard, you need to buy a replacement.
A keyboard for your laptop is around 17$ with free shipping:

I spilled tea on my laptop. A day later the keys are tyoing the wrong letters.


When this happens, you should fully disassemble the laptop & 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 laptop.
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.

Faulty keyboard duo to dust or liquid spill. Try using external keyboard, if it is working then you've got to replace your laptop keyboard.

The keyboard skips about half of keys including spaces.Help!


This sounds like maybe the keyboard got wet or some food/liquid spilled on it. Is this on a laptop or desktop? If it's a laptop, try to dry it out, if not, have the keyboard replaced by a professional like me. If it's a desktop, spring for a new keyboard, they're only about $5-10.

sorry but even a small amount of liquid can work its way under the keys. you could try getting a can of compressed air to dissipate the liquid that has seeped under the keys, if not then you will need a new keyboard or take the keyboard apart
