Having problems with your HP Pavilion dv4000 Notebook ?

Viewsonic Tablet PC keyboard issue.

\015 Recently someone spilt a beer into my tablet pc keyboard, we were using it for our fantasy football league :-). I removed the keyboard and cleaned all of the beer residue from beneath, which wasn't much, but the keyboard now has a key or keys that are stuck. So, I ordered a new keyboard, installed it and I get the same thing. As soon as I press one key the password screen fills and you can hear the beeps like someones leaning on the keyboard. Is it possible the controller is fried for the keyboard? I removed the keyboard and connected an external usb keyboard and it works fine. Thanks in advance for any help.\015\012\015\012\015\012Rich\015\012i recently spilt some juice on thekeyboard of my hp pavilion laptop my spacebar barely works and sticks but i dont know where to start to fix this problem the page will scroll all the way down spontaniously and my cursor moves across the page like someone is pressing down on the spacebar i tried popping off the keys but they areattached by something white and i dont want to break anything\015

Answers :

Try reseating the cable that connects the keyboard first.

\015\012If that doesnt help there may be liquid around the connector and it needs to be cleaned off to keep the circuit from shorting out. You will need to find someone with the appropriate chemicals and may have to take the laptop further apart to clean it all up.

\015\012This is why when anyone gets a liquid spill i recommend getting it torn down right away and cleaned up, as it can damage things you cant even see. If the liquid has been in there too long it may not be repairable.
