  1. Make sure to unplug all cables and power. Remove all!
  2. \015\012
  3. If the screen can be tilted all the way back so as to lay the Laptop flat, then lay the laptop flat, keyboard down, on top of a large piece of paper towel.
  4. \015\012
  5. Watch to see that the towel absorbs excess liquid, remove the laptop.
  6. \015\012
  7. Fill a liquid sprayer with some water, remember to remove any soaps or detergents from the container. Use water only.
  8. \015\012
  9. Form a medium size paper clip into a square hook that will fit beneath the suspect keys.
  10. \015\012
  11. Place the hook under a key and pull gently upwards until the key pops out. Be careful, I have broken a few!!!
  12. \015\012
  13. As can be observed when you do this, the keyboard is visible and cleaning can be done with a cotton swap. Spray the cotton swab with the sprayer; do not spray directly onto the keyboard. The idea of the sprayer is to avoid mishaps like dropping excess water onto the keyboard!
  14. \015\012
  15. When done with all suspect keys; replace the keys always aware of the right positioning to avoid rework! Remember to clean inside, under the key etc.
  16. \015\012
  17. If this doesn't do it or are hesitant; take it to a technician.

My Toshiba Satellite M50 laptop wont turn on.. the battery has lost it's charge, and the AC adapter no longer seems to provide any juice. Is this likely a problem with the adapter, or the laptop itself? I've read that the Toshiba Satellite line has problems with power supply, and that this is a fairly common issue on older models. (mine is now about 3.5 years old). If it is a computer problem (and not an adapter problem), is it worth spending the money to have it repaired? Thanks!
