A key pressed all the time, but keyboard is unpluged?

Hi. Thanks for your time.

This Hp compaq presario M2000 was wet with coffe (...i know...) and keyboard was writing without pressing it... (iiiiii key all the time).

I took it out and cleaned both contects with isopropyl and it went fine for 2 weeks. But The same problem came back.

I have order a new keyboard and when i have replace it,

The new one has the same problem than older.

I have unpluged the keyboard and started the laptop with NO keyboard and the iiiii key, as always is being pressed all the time. Must be a very little short somewhere?

Is there something else i can do/ Clean?

Thanks.

thanks for answering.

yes i think ill try my last option cleaning the motherboard but dessambly its a lot of work and is an old computer so... i dont really know if it will be worth it, even more, without knowing if it will work or not...

could i remove RAM modules, wifi, hd, and submerge in isopropyl like that, without dissambling?

the hole piece?? :)

is just a silly idea? but is only to try not spending to much time on it...

the other option is leave it for parts....

I'm not an expert but I think the problem could be or in the connector or in the driver. Re-install the driver of your keyboard and then, if it doesn't work, try to find broken part in the connector (the number 3 in this image: http://laptoppartstore.weebly.com/upload... )

Pep Garcia, the other thing your want to do besides cleaning the contacts is to clean the whole logic board. It is okay to submerge in 90%+ isopropyl alcohol. Anything below that percentage contains to much water to be effective.
