Found 19th Oct 2008
Just need a bit of advice please. My old laptop has a couple of things wrong with it and wondered if it is worth fixing or throwing in the bin.
1. Spilt a little bit of cider on keyboard and now the letter "p" dont work.
2. When I turn the laptop on screen flickers then goes to dark to see.
Any advice would be very helpful.
Thanks.

Sell it on detailing the faults and put the cash towards a new laptop.

Already got me one. Cant do without it. Was gonna get it fixed to sell on but if it costs to much might as well bin it. It has a few personal things on there that i would have to wipe off but cant as the screen is to dark.

the keyboard fault is easy, you can simply spray the keyboard with isopropanol and work the key a few times. it sill usually stop sticking.

the screen fault sounds like either the backlight or more likely the keyboard buttons sticking again.
if it were mine i would remove the keyboard and give it a good clean.

Thanks.I did that a few weeks ago and noticed under the letter p there seemed to be a dark patch as if it were burnt, stained or something.
