I've spilled a really sugary drink (it wasn't much but its really sugary, the kind that comes with canned fruits) on my laptop keyboard and the keys have gone weird. Its giving me 3 or 4 letters for every key I press and randomly turning on keys like shift and enter.
I've turned the laptop off within a few minutes and cleaned it with tissue and hair drier, but the keyboard isn't fully back to normal :/ Do I have to prise off the keys and clean under them? Should I be concerned about damage to the circuit?
If you can remove laptop keys as you can with a normal keyboard its a doddle. Pop them off, get some rubbing alcohol or soapy water, use q tips to clean it.
Don't use soapy water!! Buy some electronic contact cleaner (basically nail polish remover in a can), spray that under the key and leave it for an hour in a warm place to evaporate. Don't get it on any painted bits as it'll probably remove it, lol.
