  1. Hi I have a toshiba satellite L455D labtop, my daughter spelt coffee on the right handside of computer and spelled 90% of it on the keyboard. We wiped it off right away and cleaned up under it but half the keys don't work. Should I just buy a new one if so where to go and if not then how can I fix it at home?

    Hi

    you cant fix laptop KB's they arent repairable, Ebay is your best bet, they are easy to replace, usually a few screws or a couple of pop tabs and a ribbon cable.

    The fact that you spill coffee on the laptop, does not mean that the keyboard is broken, try using a USB keyboard to isolate the problem if you can.
