I've spilt a drink on our laptop and the tab and some of the keys on the left hand side are not functioning.



Any ideas on getting it fixed.



Thanks

If all else fails you may have to convert it to a desktop by plugging in a keyboard.

It depends on what you spilt on your keyboard, with regards to using a hair dryer if it is anything

else than water then drying in this way will leave a residue which will not solve the problem. As previously mentioned you can buy a usb keyboard but make sure you buy the right one. The only other option is the have the keyboard replaced.

Not sure what laptop you have but we had a similar problem with our dell laptop. Ordered one off ebay 15 and installed myself using a youtube guide it was very simple.
