Specs: Windows XP
Spilled small amount of nail varnish onto Dell Laptop Keyboard. Key of letter - between F and H ...i.e. letter after F in alphabet does not work anymore and the two numbers three and four do not work.

What are the remedies, please.

A real funny clean joke for the person who submits the best solution - er sorry have had enuf solutions!....for the best remedy!

Sounds like the solvent did some damage. You can buy a replacement keyboard. No joke.

The Subject implies "remover", but the actual question is in regards to "varnish". Which is it?

Remover is basically acetone, and it "eats" most plastics. Even to attempt to "fix" it, you will have to remove the keyboard... and while it is removed, yeah, may as well replace with a new one -- same work (actually: less), but with likely a much better outcome.

Even nail polish has lots of solvent in it because it is lacquer. It must have done some damage if it hit at the G key but the numbers 2,3,4, don't work anymore.

Do the keys move at all or are they stuck?

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