- Water spill on laptop keyboard problem
March 6, 2005, 2:12 pm
rate this thread
she cleaned it up.
after this incident the keys are typing the wrong letters for eg. if i
type H i get G and some times two or more letters for the same key.
She says she has pressed the keys vigorously during the cleaning i was
wondering if she activated some key or compressed some key which is
causing the problem.
i cleaned the keys by removing the keys but it did not help
I noticed some thing else when i switch on the computer it gives me a
message saying update EC / KBC . Where can i find this and how do i
I can use external keyboard and mouse with out any problem.
I am a computer illiterate please help
thanks in advance
Re: Water spill on laptop keyboard problem
evaluate the problem. Unfortunately, the most likely outcome is that
you will have to replace the keyboard, but there is a chance that it
will be ok (the fact that it was only water is very good and helps a lot).
I'd ignore the KBC message for now, it's probably an "artifact" of the
spill problem and probably doesn't indicate a separate problem. (KBC =
keyboard controller chip, a microprocessor on the motherboard).
