Hey last night some wine got spilt on my laptop. Now some of the buttons such as the arrow keys, insert, home, end, pg up and pg down are doing just random functions, (eg if i press left arrow it writes this: n/ and brings up a menu). Is this cureable, and if not would i be able to plug in a new keyboard and switch this one off? thanks
Umm.. can't help you here. I got water in my phone once and the keypad started doing random stuff, but it eventually sorted itself out and works fine. If it is f**ked you can buy new keyboards and install them I'm sure.
Yeh just plug in a new keyboad!
Gutted 4 ya, My keys are ****ed too. Its like if i tap 'S' for example, it will jus start goin SSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSs and dont stop until i touch another key, sometimes it will just carry on with the other key i press, its a pain in the ass! Im guessin i'll need a new keyboard too... or i might just save up for a new laptop!

Well basically sperm is alive right, so how come you don't see it move around on its own in a condom or whatever?

I've had that before. All you have to do it take the keys out seperately and just clean the underkeyboard. In my case, keys kept doing random functions, not because of spilt wine, but because of my hair (when I took several keys out, I found quite a lot of single hairs).
At the time it was quite annoying. I didn't have a spare keyboard at the time and I couldn't log onto windows because a password was needed and it kept on pushing the keys, as I later found out, "abababababababababa".

But honestly, just take the keys out of your keyboard and clean the underside.

hey, thanks very much for the help, i took the keyboard apart and cleaned it with a cotton swap and now its working pretty much (minus a couple of keys which i broke when forcing them off)
