I experienced an accident with my laptop (TM4670) as it get some liquid on the keyboard during a party. So, first move was to switch it off, dry all i could and see the damage.
At fist, I had only problems with some types which doesn't work or some other continuously stucked.
Up to this point, I thought a consciensous cleaning should do the trick and eventually its replacement.
But by now, It do not even start up ! Depending on times it launches till bios screen appears, other times it makes three "beeps" or most of the time it just switch on (power light on, fan on, DVD player running) but nothing on the screen.
I hope this is only due to the keyboard mulfunctionment.
I'm about to change it myself, do you think it could be the only cause of all my troubles. (i.e can the keyboard problem
prevent my laptop to start up normally, at least till bios screen).
thanks for your help and experience return !
Its more likely that you may have got fluid on your hard drive if this is the case i would sagest that buy a new hard drive and have someone put it in for you if you are not capable of doing it yourself also whoever replaces your hard drive ask them to also check your memory sticks and other components for damage but i feel that you may get away with just a new hard drive but do not hold me to it
Hope this helps

Computers generally don't "restore" by themselves. Are you talking about "restore" or "recovery"? "Recovery" takes a key press during startup. Maybe you accidentally pressed a function key during startup? "Restore" takes several keystrokes and must be accessed thru the "Help & Support" menu. Unlikely you did that by accident.
Keep liquids away from laptops at all times. That rule often gets broken, of course, and accidents happen. Should that accident end up on your laptop's keyboard, however, you could end up with more than just a mess: Liquids that seep through your notebook's keys can fry its components. Protect your notebook from spills with a custom-built, plastic keyboard cover from ProtecT Laptop Covers..
It sounds like you may have accidently put something in the startup menu. Click on the start menu in the bottom left hand corner. Then click on all program. Then click on the startup folder. If this program is in there, then delete it. If not – you may have a Trojan that is causing this. Google Trojan scanners and download a free one and run it.
