Specs: Windows Vista
My daughter spilled milk on her laptop. 4 keys dont work now, one being N,which is in her password to get through the Windows Vista Welcome screen. Do you know how I can bypass the welcome screen?Is there anything I can press as it boots up ? I have tried all kinds of things, but very limited without the N working
hope you can help

At some point you will need to replace the keyboard.

There may be a way to use a keystroke sequence. I think if you press and hold the alt key and then press numbers you can re-create an N. alt 78 seems to be a capitol N.

Why did it take me over a year to phone in a problem to ATT?

Thank you Grasshopper, we have some cleaning liquid at work , I will try that. I can take the keys of without them breaking and put them back on, they click back in place...

Jefro Alt 78, cheers, I will try that too, just to save her work on the laptop incase the keyboard does need replacing and the data gets wiped.

thanks both, I will let you know
Rachel :)

I can't understand why so many people who have spilled liquid on a laptop try to use it again BEFORE it has been cleaned up properly.

See response # 1 in this:

If you want to try doing that yourself, some brands have a service or maintenance manual available in the downloads for the model - e.g. HP and Compaq on the HP web site, Dell - you can often find an Acer or Sony service / maintenance manual on the web for your model or model series for free or for a small fee.

Laptop keyboards are relatively cheap to replace if cleaning it up doesn't cure your problems - other parts are often MUCH more expensive.
You can plug in an external keyboard and use it for most things if the built in keyboard won't work properly, but make sure there's no liquid or dried deposits from liquid inside the computer BEFORE you do that.
