  • Yep. You can google what type of keyboard your computer needs and google instructions for replacing it. My husband replaced mine and he is known to be very unhandy. If he can do it, surely you can too.

  • It can be a pain in the butt to replace the keyboard on a laptop. When my son spilled liquid on mine, it was almost $200 to replace the keyboard and I only paid $400 for the laptop. If it's working ok, you can pop the keys off one at a time and clean underneath or contact someone at Best Buy or a similar place and see what they recommend.

  • If the computer is still working fine, then you can replace the keyboard for pretty cheap. I replaced mine for around $20.

  • Rule #1 - Food and Drink stays in the kitchen :)

    That keyboard thing about the laptop is interesting. I'll have to keep that in mind.

  • maybe try some air duster and a blow dryer?

    And invest in laptop keyboard covers?
