How to clean coffee spill from Toshiba laptop

\015 Laptop: Toshiba Satellite L300DModel: Satellite PSLC8A-02200YIssue: I have managed to spill some coffee on the keyboard of abovelaptop. Spills are not covered by warranty so Toshiba won't repair it. Due to spill, some keys have become stuck so when it starts up, it makes a beeping noise. The only issue caused by the spill is sticky keys so I need to clean the keyboard. The laptop was left to dry for two weeks already.I need step by step direction on how to open the laptop (with pictures and details) and then how to clean the coffee. Please send details about this model only - I have looked at internet and there are many related model but their directions don't work with this particular model.Please send a detailed solution and not just one two advice.\015

\015\012You can use a qtip with rubbing alcohol to clean up the spilled coffee.
\015\012
\015\012Dip the qtip in the alcohol and squeeze out any Excess. Use the qtip to clean up the mess. Then use the dry end to dry the cleaned spot as much as possible. You may need many Qtips depending on how much of a mess you have. Once you have the Laptop cleaned leave it apart for about 10 - 15 minutes to allow any residual alchohol to evaporate. You should now be able to reasseble your laptop and give it a try.

The best would be to use isopropyl alcohol (rubbing alcohol, cheap and easily available). It cleans well, and dries almost instantly..Since you got the keyboard open, this would be the way to go..

You could also try the wet-wipes, same formula, but with a deodrant as well :)
