    This is stupid but funny... but I need help

    Ok. Here is my story. While I was sitting at my computer yesterday I knocked over Diet Dr. Pepper onto my keyboard. (I am not kidding). ops: So I grad some paper towels and wipe up all of the dr. pepper out of the keyboard. While I was wiping up the Dr. Pepper I pressed a bunch of keys. So now when I try to type a 3 it comes up with a 38 and when I try to type a 5 it comes up with 45 and many other things. It is very annoying and I feel pretty stupid but if anyone knows how to fix this please tell me. :roll:

    I spilt milk on my keyboard like a month ago. I cleaned it all up but the keyboard ended up not working. I had to go buy a new one. Thats what you should probably do.

    It workd ok but some of the numbers are just randomly changed. I am guessing that this is from me pressing random buttons while trying to clean up the keyboard. I am going to try uninstalling and reinstalling it... maybe that will work.

    Open the key board up and run the shower over it or put it in a dishwasher. Afterward make sure it is dried really well and it should work fine. :smile:

    Here is a link on how to do it.

    Re: This is stupid but funny... but I need help

    I've spilt on almost everything (even washed my vcr remote in the washing machine). The key I find is to make sure you don't use it for a few days (until all of it has a chance to dry). Even if you think you've dried it off, there's a little liquid in it...and the liquid acts as a conductor of electricity...and fries stuff. At least that's what I figured when I screwed up my play station controller. I once spilt coffee on a brand new $4000 computer...and when I was drying it off, I knocked off a capacitor. Fortunately, my IT guy was a genius and soldered it back on.

    Re: This is stupid but funny... but I need help

    yah i dropped a cell phone in a pool once, i just let it dry for about 3 days and then it started working again. with electronics, just make sure they are completely dry before trying to start it up again. sounds like you might have already shorted something out tho, that's a bummer. good thing keyboards aren't too expensive

    Thanks Josdin
