I spilt coffee on my laptop. The keyboard is not working

\015 The keyboard was cleaned and blown but on fixing it back it has not worked at all. I've fixed a USB and it has worked but the touchpad is not working. do i buy a new keyboard ? Is the touch pad spoilt/My machine is an Acer aspire 5630\015

Answers :

Usually laptop keyboard and touch pad have a protecting cover for situations like this, but would depends on how much, how far and how long the liquid stayed on the keyboard and pads surface.

one thing to check though.

remove again the keyboard of the book and check the keyboard cable going to the board if its tightly fix, same with all other connectors.

if still the same problem...then the keyboard is fried.
