I have an IBM T41 and some wine accidently spilled on it.
I clean it up, busted out the hair dryer and dried it on cool for a little bit.
The computer was on the whole time and i didn't turn it off
until the computer started acting funny so i turned it off and i waited for a few hours.
Then i tried turning it on and everytime i start up my computer, i get this error

0210: Stuck Key 2C

and it stops there so i can't get to my desktop.

I have no clue as to what i should do.

It sounds like one or more of the keys on the board are jammed. Try pressing each key in a few times, it might move the block. If that doesn't work you might have to remove the keyboard and clean it out.

Try connecting another keyboard to it. Get it to the desktop. Run it to see if it runs OK and there are no shorts in the system as it operates. ANd no other messages or even the same message. You may have to take some keys off to clean them and underneath.

How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook
