Windows 7: Water on keyboard......

18 Nov 2016   #1

Windows 7 Home (64bit)
Water on keyboard......

This is for an HP Envy laptop. So I spilled water on my keyboard and after 2 hours of drying the buttons were all crossed. I put the keyboard face down on a heater(it doesn't get hot) and though none of my buttons are crossed, some don't work. "ASDF, Y, [,], J"......... Everything else works fine and as of right now I am using a cheap 10$ USB keyboard.

What do I do from here?

Give it a day or two. If still bad it will require replacing the keyboard.

turn it upside down and shake it, then tip to one corner and see if water drips out

leave in warm place for couple days and see if it working, sometimes they dry out

If it Pepsi or coffee not always so lucky or anything with sugar in it

You can take the keyboard apart and soft cloth dry if you know what your doing this will speed things up a lot, but still give drying time day or so, depends how much water and where

If it's just plain water. Stand the laptop on its end and put a fan in front of it for a couple of days.

If it`s still not working properly, buy a new keyboard, I got a new one on Ebay for an HP Probook for $20

But I would see if HP has one for sale 1st.

Water vs Oil
Not a problem just more of a question for future builds. Many people use water to cool their systems which is great but has the always present danger of leaks therefore potential damage to other components. Others now use mineral oil for cooling which is great but looks really messy and when...

Spilled water on entire laptop, mouse and keyboard dont work.
Spilled about 1l of water on my entire laptop... I wiped water from it, and turned it on. The only parts that don't work: Mouse, Keyboard. What should I do? P.S: In the BIOS the keyboard works(and other stuff before the OS actually loads)

Water Cooler
Okay, so I made up my mind I want to try it. I can't decide which one I want. Which one would you suggest? Are the quiet? How much cooler will my cpu be, from what I read the big difference is when under load as ambient temp plays in to idle temp. If you read my specs you will see my mb...

To water cool, or not to water cool...that's the question.
So, I was perusing TigerDirect the other day, looking for a really good BBK, found what I wanted and ordered it. However, I know a guy, who knows another guy, that can get me the uber edition of the i7 core for less than TD can. As I was discussing overclocking with him, I brought up water...
