I spilt root beer on my keys. Now keys 'a', 'z', 'q', '1', and 'Esc' do not work. I'm guessing my keyboard is screwered now, but is there anything I can do to try and fix it? I took off the keys and dried out the keyboard, let it sit for a while, but still, those keys are not working. It is weird because they are not working, but when i press one of them five times I get the StickyKeys feature to pop up, which is weird, because that means the computer knows the key is being pressed... but it won't display any letters.
1. Is there anything I cn do to try nd fix it?
2. I have an Inspiron 500 laptop, how much would it cost to get fixed? (No, I don't have complete care)
Spills cause all kinds of damage. You may have to replace the keyboard. Click here to buy one or try Dell Spare Parts. I take it you have an Inspiron 5000
Or you could use an external KB.
