Having problems with your HP PC Laptops ?
Drop coffee on the keyboard, and don't have power
This has happened to me ... with a friend's computer nonetheless!!! Unplugged the laptop right away (including the battery) so as not to cause more damage. The newer laptops I found out come with a spill guard under the keyboard to protect for these kinds of accidents. I wiped up as much as I could with paper towels and then I flipped it over and let it dry ... and waited ... and waited ... I waited until the end of the day because I wanted to make sure everything was dry before plugging it back in. It worked. I cleaned the keys off with a damp cloth. The keys sticked a little bit at the beginning but it's been a year and everything is still fine. :)

My HP Pavilion dv9005us has two issues which I cannot resolve. The wireless device is not even recognized or detected by the computer, and there seems to be an electrical problem where the lighted buttons at the top flicker on and off from time to time, which may also be linked to an issue where the computer will at times refuse to turn on after I press the on button and watch it all light up in response and immediately shut off. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

In a moment of spontaneous genius, I spilled a half cup of coffee on my Eee PC Netbook keyboard. After immediately removing the power source and allowing it to dry on its side, I attempted to boot up. Windows will start with no problem, but the keyboard and touch pad are no longer functioning. How can I find out if the keyboard repairable, or what steps do I take from here?
The keyboard likely has some coffee that is inside the keyboard. Some use rubberish pads that have little buttons coated with what looks like charcoal that push down on the circuit board and form a connection when you push on the key. The board lik ... ASUS Eee 900 Netbook
