Having problems with your Sony VAIO PCV-W510G PC Desktop ?

I spilled OJ on my Sony PCV-W510G keyboard and now it doesn't work. The PC still works with mouse only input. Pressing any keyboard key does nothing. Can I take it apart to clean it or is it ruined?


Answers :

1. if the mouse is still working and you can power up the pc normally then this means that the contacts in the keyboard are shorted due to the sugar from the OJ.
2. If you are not qualified to disassemble the keyboard on the PC. I recommend a new keyboard.
3. This is not usually not recommended but putting the keyboard in the dishwasher and letting it "air dry" usually will clean the keyboard if it is a USB or PS2.
hope this helps.
