If you spill on your keyboard it really depends on how much you spilled on how big of a problem you will have. If it is a big spill the first thing you need to do is turn it off fast. Even if you have to do it by removing the battery and losing your work. this is CRITICAL!!!!! Electrolysis starts eating up electronic components very fast. Next remove your cmos battery for the very same reason. Then You will need to take the laptop apart and find just how far that coffee or pop actually spilled. For a major spill like this you should take it to a computer expert after your batteries are unpluged. There is a good chance you might save it. If it was just water and you got the batteries unhooked there is a very good chance that it will be fine once it is dried out. Dissassembly is the only sure way to make sure it is dry. Even then id let the parts sit in a very warm place for a few days.

Best thing to do is to take the keyboard out of the laptop. There is usually a top cover above the keyboard that needs to come off. Then there is some screws holding in the keyboard, unscrew those and then unhook the ribbon part of the keyboard off of the motherboard.

Then at that point take a paper towel or washcloth with glass cleaner and clean all around where the spillage is.

Also clean off the keyboard is well and let it sit for a day so it can dry out.

Then put the keyboard back and see if the keyboard is working properly, if not then you'll need to replace it.

You will need to enter the exact model number and you will be able to find a PDF file that will show you how to get the keyboard out.

It is actually very easy to do, but you will need the step by step manual if this is your first time working on a lappie.

Turns on and off after spill


You should not use laptop at least one week after spill! If someone spill something on laptop, immediately pull out the power cable and battery, and flip the top side down. Then clean it in laptop service and it should be OK, maybe you will have to replace keyboard. If liquid stay inside, it will make short circuit and destroy mainboard, so you should take it to the laptop service for cleaning.

You need to replace the keyboard.

Have you spilled anything on the keyboard? If so, and if it was sticky, this would explain the problem. Unfortunately, you cannot get the keyboard replaced under warranty if you spilled on it, since that is considered "user abuse" or "user-caused damage". If you have not spilled anything, however, and if your computer is still in warranty, then you should have no problem getting the keyboard replaced. Since this is a consumer laptop (as opposed to the business laptops, which I am authorized to repair), I would suggest taking it to Best Buy. If it's out of warranty, you should be able to replace the keyboard yourself isf you are able to locate one on ebay or wherever. HP keybards are pretty easy to replace. Two or three screws on the bottom will release it and you can pop it out. Just don't yank the cable out.

Spilled juice on my H P Pavilion laptop keyboard, keyboard is not working at all. Please help!


Do you have an HP Accidental Damage extended warranty? If you do, you can call HP's tech support and get it fixed/replaced.

If you don't have the extra warranty, you can try to carefully pop the keyboard keys off and carefully clean underneath as the contacts below the keys are possibly stuck in the down position.

You may have to take it to a service centre and have a technician open up the laptop and see if it can be cleaned and try to "unstuck" the keyboard keys.

Keyboard or motherboard?


Its your keyboard thats the problem because if it was you mboard or one of the tracks in the circutry is the keyboard connection panel you would have a problem using all the alphabetical keys because they are all connected to the same track.
