Okay...I spilt soup on my laptops keyboard, yes I know, Im dumb... However I got it all dried up and everything is fine except now I have to press own on certain keys extra hard for the computer to respond. Is this a fixable problem?? What should I do? Thanks

Hi there

Basically you need to take the keyboard apart & clean the membrane & the keys. How you go about doing this depends on which laptop you have.
If you don't feel comfortable with doing this, I suggest you take it to a repair specialist. If you want to do it yourself, you will need the service manual or similar in order to determine the correct order of disassembly. Any removable plastic parts can be washed in water but only use an anti-static foam on anything metal. Make sure of course that everything is completely dry before you reassemble it.
