Couple of weeks ago I managed to spill diet coke on my laptop keyboard - and yes Syd it was definitely DC and not alcohol
Keys were a bit sticky for a few hours, but then seemed ok
Now they've gon wappy and I'm struggling to log on to anything because I can't type passwords into anything, can't use the @ key and find myself just typing gobbledygook - I know, no change there
Anyway, anyone got any suggestions on how to clean it properly?

Quite straight forward as you should be able to just "pop" the keys out. I should know as the kids have allowed me to learn this particular parental skill!

I use alcohol to wet clean & air to dry clean. If it was a major accident you'll need to get a copy of the owners manual to take the thing apart.

If your still stumped & you want to take the top off I'll be back in a couple of hours.... pirat

If you take it to a computer repair shop, they'll do it for about £25

Go for it Jerry

Seriously though Dave's suggestion is a good one but if you have the time, about six to eight screws is all it takes if Nick wants a play  Wink


Happy now fella's lol!

Had same problem with mine. Except mine was alcoholic.

For future reference, remove battery immediately. 

Thought I'd done a good job drying it with kitchen roll, etc, But no luck. Some keys worked, others didn't. So I could keep in contact with this luverrly web site (Pinnochio mode again), I bought a cheap keyboard at "Everything a Pound" type shop, plugged it into laptop, and bingo ! So pleased with self.

Man called Tom (thought you might want to know that !) in pub is a wiz with all things computer. He works servicing the fancy electronic supermarket tills - knows his stuff but his instructions are a bit wobbly at times. He said you can replace keys, but beware you often break them as you do it. That was so true. I did as I was removing the ones that didn't work. He said the magic words, "Bring it in and I'll do it" - brilliant. 

Googled what to do and got onto YouTube. Step by step guide for thickies like me. They were even using my Dell model but there are also HP, Acer, Asus, etc. Found a new keyboard on eBay for £9.50, original Dell item. It arrived in 2 days. Followed the video, and the rest is history. So easy it took me longer to remove the screw out of the access lid than it took to do the lot. Seems the little screw is sorted so it tells Dell whether you have had the back off for Warranty claims, etc.
