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

Advent 7083 drivers

You can go to the following site for drivers for your Advent 7083{64e249d4-f085-47e0-a64a-5fb0a1c0b111}&CatID={2d964229-bedd-400a-ae44-316a77a38764}

Since the 7083 is basically a rebadged ECS 331 ( you should see 331 printed on the underside
of the laptop ), you can also go to this site as well

There is not so much that could be done to repair a keyboard. Disassemble the laptop, check the ribbon cable connecting the keyboard to the motherboard. If the ribbon cable is loose, tighten it. If it is tight, replace the keyboard with a new one.
