Hey!

First Post! My Friend dripped some beer last night into my keyboard. All the other buttons
seems to work fine and so does the rest of the computer. Space key howeawer is very sticky and only works fine pressing the left side of it with some extra force...

Was looking around allot but cant seem to find someone with the same problems.

Some now how to get a button loose from the keyboard so i can clean?

Tried bending it loose but it just dosent fell right...

My computer is a G53J.

Please help.

Sorry to any admin if i have miss posted this thread.

I haven't read anything about someone successsdully removing a key from a G-series kb. What I would do would be to use long, thin brush to clean the area around the key with alcohol withbthe notebook off and unplugged . Be careful with the finish, though. I don't know how it handles alcohol.

This should also be covered by the 1 yr accident warranty, if you have that coverage.

BTW, don't drink and hard drive. 😄
