Hi, I have an Acer Aspire that drank some milk. I have everything working except the keyboard. So I am unable to enter my password to get to a few files I need ASAP. Does anyone know a quick keyboard fix. Or a way to bypass the keyboard, or anything....Please Help! And Thank You in Advance.

Plug in a USB keyboard, thats your quickest way of "getting it going".

Besides that your keyboard might be shot, however it's possible you could take it apart and clean it - but that's not guaranteed to work.

Edit: whats your OS?

If you have windows 7 click on the bottom left icon that looks like a clock and select "Use on screen keyboard" and click OK. This will allow you to select your letters and numbers with your mouse.
