Hello everyone,

I have recently accidentally spilled water onto my laptop keyboard three or four days ago. It took me 30 seconds or so to find a towel to dry the keyboard and in doing so, I ran roughly to and fro with the towel across the keyboard. I put the laptop in a bad with rice. Two or three days later, I turned it on, but the keyboard is not working. My brother took it apart to see if any damage has been done to the circuits, but he told me he didn't see any damage. From what it looks like, it may be only permanent damage to the keyboard. As far as I know, only 8 keys on the keyboard work and the majority of it does not. Everything else seems to be working fine. I went online to see about a HP Pavilion g7 series notebook PC keyboard replacement and I've found results from $28.00--$55.00. Do you think buying a new keyboard replacement could solve the problem or do you think it could be something else more severe?

Hi Posted ImageJoey_Roddy

In my opinion I think you're lucky the Laptop even starts up, if it were me I would definitely consider trying a new keyboard.
