You should immediately meet an expert to get your laptop fixed and to prevent further damage.DO NOT USE your laptop until it is fixed because it would further risk its condition and would harm the motherboard.

Select boot device Error after keyboard spill Wierd results


It is more than likely the motherboard has been compromised, you will see white spotted area's where the liquid has spilt. I have fixed a few boards using a stiff toothbrush and rubbing alcohol, but to be successfull this needs to done quickly. If you are able to clean everything off and it seems to work check out www.ebay.com Type make and model, refine search to keyboard.

My GATEWAY pc laptop keyboad letter WEOPB BACKSPACE and #0 dont work.im now using on-screen keyboard.what shall i do.please advice.tnx


Seems like you have spilt liquid on the keyboard?

the liquid causes connections between the circuit board in keyboard which causes the keys to not work properly.

u can try take off the keys and get to keyboard, you might be able to clean it with isopropyl alchohol and a cotton bud to fix it.

if you cant get the keyboard out then there is nothing you can do!

I spilt a little water on it yesterday! It continued to work fine. But now today, the battery light is off and on flashing even though I have it plugged in and it will not turn on.


1. Unplug the AC adapter.
2. Remove the battery.
3. Disassemble the laptop & clean all internal components.
4. Assemble it back & test it.

When this is done, 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.

If it still does not work, the motherboard might be damaged & needs to be replaced.

Some liquid was spilt on the key board an the side of my acer aspire one notebook, how do i disasemble and clean it so i can get it back to working, or is that even possible?


You can remove the keyboard and clean any liquid under it. ( The keyboard is one-piece ... and you may not be able to clean easily under each key.)
Review the first few steps to "upgrade the RAM" ... it describes how to remove the keyboard... http://forums.redflagdeals.com/acer-aspire-one-upgrades-how-609546/

Check out the series of pictures (at least the 1st 3) and accompanying instructions to do this ... http://s344.photobucket.com/albums/p322/bb320/
