Hi all!

I have a HP Compaq 6510b laptop and my 4 yr old spilled sugar all over the keyboard :) . What do you suggest the best way to get it out is? I feel crunching sugar as I type!

Hi,

I think a can of compressed air should do the job, you can ask for more information in your local computer store :) .

Make sure that the keyboard is totally dry before you use the compressed air other wise the sugar that is damp will stay stuck.

01-stillwaters- sugar in Keyboard (1-4- 2010)

Stillwaters –

Also do not invert can – Keep it upright as possible - - Turn the Keyboard ---Not the can

Compressed air –under pressure - - when can is inverted tends to emit the moisture - - (water) - - -which will end up being worse than crunchy –
