Spill soda on my laptop keyboard
\015 Sound like crackers on it. What should i do.\015
Um the sounds would be the coke sticking to your keys i imagine, if you have any idea how, take the keyboard out and on a cloth spray some household bench cleaner and wipe over keyboard. Dont spray directly on the keyboard. If this fails, replace the keyboard. If you dont know how to, or you are afraid you may damage it, take it to a local IT tech to do all the cleaning for you
