[ltp] Coffee in X61
Mon, 7 Feb 2011 12:22:48 +0100
thank you for this.
As mentioned, I rinsed it under the tap, and I dried it with a blow
dryer (de-ioniser switched on, don't worry).
It has been drying like that for about 3 to 4 hours.
But it is still acting up in such a way that I think there is water
between the plastic sheets.
The thing is that due to how it's made; the frame containing the keys
is riveted to the back panel, I don't think I can get the sheets out
So I am hoping someone here has had something similar and knows if
there is a way to do this.
