Water immerse on Acer Aspire 5750G Keyboard

Accidentally splashed drinking water on laptop keyboard’s number pad, after cleaned out water on it, windows still works okay but random alphabet error appeared after sometime, such as: typing “l” will give “l7”. Tried to restart, but it failed to boot in Windows 7 by producing sound of “beep beep beep…” continuously.

Done some searching and it was water immerse into parts below keyboard water that caused boot failure. I checked out my acer warranty over here: https://www.acer-apac.com/acer_web/, it shows the laptop still within warranty period. I sent it to Highpoint Low Yat Plaza for repair, unfortunately, according to the staff, keyboard is not included within warranty parts, it cost RM 120 to replace a new keyboard. Check out here for all the service centers and Operating Hours at this link: Service Centers Location.

It takes 2 working days to get it fixed but waited four days for my case (22 May – 25 May) since there is public holiday and weekend in between. Multiple SMS were sent to my phone on repairing progress, which is very helpful for client without the need to calling-in. As image below,
