How to clean inspiron 1525 touch pad

\015 I spilled soda on my notebook and now my touch pad moves slow and the right click button sticks. Is there anyway top clean under the touch pad.\015

Answers :

Hi there.
The touchpad itself is easy to clean but if the liquid has got into the left and right click keys you may have a problem, a warm soapy partially dry cloth will take the residue off the touchpad but the soda may have got to the circuit board causing it to be slow to react.
To clean the left and right keys and under the touchpad you have to take the laptop apart, remove the keyboard and the front cover and clean under that where you can get under the left/right click keys and the ribbon cable of the touchpad.
This type of job is not for the novice and i would advise having a technician do it whether it's in or out off warranty, preferably Dell themselves.
Other than that the best option would be to buy a wireless or wired mini mouse which are much easier to use than the touchpad itself.

Please post back with the results and more help if needed, good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

I am working on an HP Pavillion a1220n Desktop and I am getting different bootups each time.

Hi, I bought a liquid metalpad thermal interface cpu pad for my dell inspiron 5160 laptop. I replaced the old paste from between cpu and the heatsink fan. I cleaned the surface using alcohol.

My computer was recently sent to repair so the cpu was removed from the heatsink fan. There was
