How do I save a keyboard after a coffee spill?
tganley 1 year ago
You know those large McDonald's coffees, the really big ones? I knocked one of those over on my keyboard this morning. On the upside, I found that this was at least as effective as drinking it would have been at waking me up. On the downside, there is coffee dripping out of my keyboard. It was the keyboard for my desktop PC and not my laptop, thankfully, and I disconnected it and have it upside down in a sink dripping coffee. Is there any way to save the keyboard, or is it just McToast at this point?
