I am new here in search of help - a Lenovo X300 owner.
I spilled a bit of tea (truly not much) on my keyboard....everything was working fine with the exception of left-click button (in fact both the left key bottoms above and below the track pad would not work, neither did double-clicking on the pad itself). I tried the following:
- run it in safe mode
- reinstall the mouse drivers
- switch the right-click for left-click in control panel/mouse (this worked)
- rejuvenate the system
- eventually reinstall the whole thing to factory settings.
Nothing worked - right-click button is fine, the left-click buttons (i.e. both above and below the track-pad) show no response. The left-click buttons wouldn't work in Recovery and Rescue either.
I had to conclude that this is a hardware problem and that the spill was the cause (so much for x300 lenovo can withstand even spills...trust me, this was not a real spill,just a few drops).
Now this is a 3-year old computer, no warranty.
Is there anything else I could try to do?
I am thinking of taking apart the keyboard and trying to see if I can somehow dry it? (the whole thing is dry but there could be some water inside?...). Or is the circuitry simply fuked? (I am worried that this might be the case given that the left-click button below the trackpad which is not part of the keyboard isn't working either).
If I do take apart, try to have it dry somehow and it still shows no signs of recovery, what's the next step? How much would this cost to get it fixed? (I am afraid more than what I am willing to pay....).
New keyboard would probably not cut, would it? (I have found that one can get one for as cheap as 80USD).
Thank you for your advice,
