Need help with keyboard, pls notebook

Postby Annapurna » Sun Nov 04, 2012 2:04 pm

A few drops of tea fell on my keyboard, I've blowdryed it a lot yesterday and it seems to work, except the Num cap is locked at "on", and so a lot of numbers appear instead of the abc, :(

I copied and pasted this ,

What can I do ? It's a Sunday and all shops are closed here,

Can I try to pull the tag out,,,,?

pls help!! :reading:

OK - no computer expert here - but most keys on a keyboard will pop/snap off the board.
You may have a bit of dried sticky stuff under that particular key. If it was me, I'd try popping
off that key and clean underneath.

Keep in mind I know nothing of the type of keyboard you have, so take my "advice" with a bit of salt.
Now having obtained a precious human body,
I do not have the luxury of remaining on a distracted path.

There are ways of remapping keys but I can't think of them right now. If you're using windows, the on-screen keyboard might help you figure out which key is stuck. I think on windows its in all programs -> accessories -> accessibility -> keyboard. I could be wrong, but it can't hurt to look for it. Good luck
