Hi :thumbsup:

My friend spilt a small bit of liquid (jack danial's to be precise) but now sometimes when some of the keys are pressed, a few different characters will come up ie if you press 'm' then 'm0u' might come up. some days it's grand and some days it's pretty bad.

I'm assuming she'll need a new keyboard, does anyone know where I can get one?

Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.

:flowers:

By the way, her OS is Vista premium.

A local purchase is usually less expensive considering vat taxes and shipping costs.

An E systems 3213 laptop should recognize a generic.

Yes it does, to be sure try a USB keyboard to see if the problem recurs.
