  1. Hi all,

    Well the message was not clear, but here is the problem I am having.

    I own a Acer Aspire 5920G and I accidentally spilled water onto it, was not a lot and thankfully my laptop lived. However, there is only one slight problem. My Keyboard is malfunctioning, as it is typing random stuff and doing random things. Not like a backdoor. It goes like "eeeeewwwwwwwwwwwwwxxxxxffffggggghhhhh" it somtimes backspaces and does random inputs. I don't know what's going on and I hope someone here can help me solve this problem.

    *Note I think it's a problem within the computer because the keys are not sticky and I can still type but not with all the kets.*

    Hi

    laptop keyboards are delicate at the best of times, any liquid spilt into it will dry and cause this issue,

    you can use an external keyboard and see if it does this, you will have to remove the keyboard from the laptop, this is usually done by removing some screws and then undoing the ribbon connector from the board, or by unclipping the keyboard from the housing and disconnecting the ribbon cable.

    keyboard go for about £15 on ebay dependant on who is selling it, dont try and repair it you will be wasting your time.

    regards
