Liquid and sugar are not a good combination. Actually the WORST COMBINATION you can have spilled on a PC. I suggest 99.7% Isopropyl alcohol. (Air is worthless) Pull the keys off the keyboard and try cleaning the holes with Q-tips. If that doesn't do it, then you'll have to get your screw drivers out and pull the skins off the laptop and pull the keyboard "pad" out and clean it. If that doesn't work then you may have a "Pepsi Syndrome" and need to replace the keyboard pad.
Look for one online from Newegg, or other vendor. The model number will be right on the old key "pad" so finding another won't be too hard. You already know the model of PC you have.

Was that Caffeine Free or Regular? Sounds like it's a little shaky.
I Googled "keyboard, laptop, coke" and got a million references. The whole world is talking about coke spills. A guy in China even sells a keyboard prophylactic, made of thin plastic "doesn't affect the feel."
I only had to press the backside of the case at a certain spot to get her's going, at least temporarily. I didn't take it apart although it looks easy enough. You'll find replacement keyboards online for less than 50 bucks if cleaning doesn't work.
Thanks! I'm going to try the alcohol and q-tips....then if that doesn't work...a new keyboard! Thanks a bunch. I hope you saved me a lot of grief from the IT guys at work.....they get sooooo crazy when you mess up your laptop!
