a month or two ago i was stupid enough to spill some drink onto the keyboard on the laptop...
after this had happened there were a few keys that werent working, after some drying and things i was hoping it would work and well..it didnt...
Most of the keys started to work except one..the 'a' key, now since then ive had to copy an a off somewhere then paste it evertime i need one...bloody annoying!

what i want to know is, how i get about replacing a laptop keyboard?

click here Replacing a keyboard is quite easy providing you can gain access to it. Usually there are only one or two ribbon cables and the keyboard is held in position by the surround. I suggest that because it`s only one key that it could probably be repaired. Find a local laptop repair shop.

If its not working after spilling something on it and the rest of the computers ok and its only one key them if you can get into it a good clean with some cleaning solution that may fix it.
