Hi Logged on this morning while eating my Kelloggs, accidentally knocked the spoon handle and got milk from it and the bowl over the keyboard of my Dell Inspiron laptop Yes I know I shouldnt!!
Quickly ran tissues too and fro over the keys which caused lots of indeterminate display changes ending with the screen being rotated 9O degrees Sorted that out but dont know what else changed before this last change! After drying out the keyboard (without disconnecting the ribbon cable) and rebooting everything works OK except the keyboard Several of the keys dont work Instead some do strange things like starting up OE or IE search using MSN which I dont use Some give several letters and others run a save l gives fsdalk while 0 gives 42310 In Word when I type the second row asd etc on typing the colon it changes the a to A Typing this took an hour with lots of copy and paste I am wondering if running over the keys may have inadvertently remapped the keyboard Anyone have any suggestions other than using a restore point
My friend spilt wine on her laptop about a month ago. Took battery out and turned upside down but it still does some very strange things. There is either still moisture in the thing or perhaps the minerals in the wine are causing an electrolysis effect on the pcb's? Are there any ways of beating the problem other than an insurance claim? Is it worth taking to my local PC repairer?
My wife spilt a glass of wine on her laptop keyboard a few years ago. Result a drunken laptop with a strange behaving keyboard. Solution - new keyboard installed in the laptop - fortunately under a warranty which catered for accidental damage. It would be still going strong but has now been pensioned off. You may well have to get the keyboard changed.
