I'm sorry to say this, but the water has killed your keyboard, and you will need to replace it. There's no way of fixing it, other than replacement.

Juice spilled on dell laptop,the problem is when i press certain keys 3 or 4 letters apear,it is the same with a new keyboard


If that happens with a new keyboard then the mother board is faulty and a replacement laptop is on the horizon. What happens with an external (USB) keyboard?
Hope this helps.

After liquid spill the laptop has to be disassemble and the motherboard inspected for liquid damage. In some cases cleaning the motherboard might fix the laptop.

I have a dell insipron 1545 and got water spilled on it and the '' b,n,spacebar,-,=,?,left and down arrow keys wont work. is there anything i can do to fix it?


Disconnect the battery and a/c plug. Use a hair dryer on the keyboard for a while to try and dry it out. It may take a couple of days to dry out. If it continues to have problems your laptop may need a new keyboard or motherboard.

Dell notebook keyboard malfunction


I suspect just as you suggested something was spilled on it. Other than loose keys laptop keyboards are generally not repairable. They are not that difficult to replace, but check the Service Manual before deciding to do it yourself.
