Hi everyone,
Yesterday I spilled coffee on my Acer aspire laptop keyboard. I immediately disconnected battery and hard drive and took apart laptop to clean and dry. It dried for more than 24 hours and I reassembled the laptop. Computer turns on and seems to be working fine except for the keyboard. The keyboard will not type. What I am confused about though is that if I tap spots on the ribbon it will type but the keys themselves will not work. This leads me to beieve the keys should work if the ribbon is still working. How can I try to get the actual keys to work?

If all USB ports and everything else is working do you suspect the keyboard needs replaced or that it still could be something with the mobo?
