I have a Compaq Presario Laptop and I spilt tea on the keyboard a few weeks ago. I am using Windows ME.
The computer basically works OK but sometimes there are problems booting up - the computer complains about a stuck key, beeps continuously, shows the Windows ME screen and then just a flashing cursor.
The keys 'g', 'h', '-' and some function keys no longer work. I have solved the problem by attaching an additional keyboard.
I wondered whether there was a software way of disabling the built-in keyboard so that the keyboard does not cause problems in startup and just work from the additional keyboard.
