If it was only water (small amount) and you turned it off immediately than let it completely dry for 48 hours and it should be OK, if the laptop received water in side it (on components) and you let it run than it could have damaged the motherboard so bad it could need to be replaced... if it was some beverage with sugar, the key board has to be disassembled and cleaned in a ultrasonic bath or replaced...

Matthew.,

Before you declare the keyboard dead and unusable please do the following. Use the hairdryer without heat to blow cold air into the keyboard. This will remove all traces of water that may be shorting the keys. Do it for quite sometime as you have to ensure that there is no water left under the keys.

All the best

There's a need for you to bring your netbook to a service center to check for any possible hardware problem. Usual cleaning should be able to resolve this issue but if not it requires a local service center to ran further check on your netbook.

Keyboard not working


sounds like the liquid did its damage to the motherboard. you could try removing the keyboard and cleaning the inside out using a magnifying glass and some q-tips but does not sound good my friend. i suggest you take it in to a repair shop nearby and have then do a thorough inspection but be prepared to have to replace the motherboard if it has damaged or corroded solder joints


good luck!

In the upper front of the keyboard you can twist or remove the cover after you remove the cover unscrew the four or three screw that hold the keyboard and then detached the keyboard and clean or dry it.
