G53sw RMA questions Broken keyboard

Level 7
Well it happened was playing quake live at a lan my friend rages throws his mouse hits a cup, cup falls over and spills all over my keyboard =[ I was quick to unplug it and take the battery out. So my laptop is fine I just have sticky keys

so recently trying to get rid of the stickyness I wipe my keyboard down with a lysol wipe and I assume some liquid got in the right spot that breaks it Icant belive that breaks itconsidering a full glass of orange juice spilled on it It was literally pouring out I believe the g53sw comes with accidental warrenty I submitted a RMA.

But my real question is. When I send them my laptop will they send me a refurbished unit or repair mine and send it back. Its really only a matter of replacing the keyboard I already took it out and the liquid only got into the keyboard no where else it's set up using wireles kb and mouse the computer is fine.

I am trying to see if they will send me just the keyboard I need 04GNV33KUS03-3 Instead of sending them m pc and be without it as im in school and need it, I have customized my laptop and have gotten attached to it lol.

Since you took it apart, the warranty may be already gone... Why just not buying a replacement keyboard?

I thought as much I also reformatted it with backtrack 5 and win7 ultimate and thought that might void the warranty as well. Just trying to get a free replacement kb I noticed they were on sale but as a broke college student 65 bucks + shipping isn't that cheap.

I figured it would be a long shot that they would send me just the keyboard but Asus would be the best company ever if they could

I'll try Pming Mason and see what he says

I thought these machines come with a accidental coverage. I also thought that you are allowed to take certain parts of them apart before you actually void your warranty.

If thats the case I will not be trying to mod my back light. Also is there a way to check how much time you have left based on the serial number. I Have the purchase date and where it was purchased from.

@Frostedflames, you have to register for accidental damage protection. certain SKUs of the G53Sw model don't qualify for ADP, e.g., i believe best buy models don't usually qualify for ADP but if you purchased from amazon, newegg, tigerdirect, etc. then it should qualify. you can register for ADP at

@hazard99, If you give me the serial number then I can check out when your warranty period runs out.
