    Okay first of all I am sorry for my broken English,
    So I was eating strawberry while watching Netflix on my Lenovo laptop. I toke bite on strawberry and it splashed on my touchpad, normally when water dropped i used to clean with my shirt and everything was going okay after that. But this time even after I cleaned touchpad it didnt work out. My touchpad was working so slowly and when i tried to move left it was moving another direction. So i tried to clean with wet wipe maybe if there is stain on the touchpad or something like that. Everything got worse. I cant use my touchpad it doesnt move , when it moves usually go different locations. As a student i need to work on on my studies and this laptop is my only device. My cellphone is not usable i need a quick help. Some people might say shut off the laptop and wait 1 day or remove the batteries or something like that but i need to use now. I dropped water a lot of times and after i wiped it worked normally. But this time nothing helps it and i am so scared can i use hairdryer?

    Don't use a hairdryer!!!

    Get a USB mouse and use that instead of the touchpad. I've owned 5 laptops and never used the touchpad on any of them. The first thing I do is attach a mouse.

    Okay lets be clear :)
    I am not using this computer on my desk. Its more like easy carriable laptop. Mouses are big and exra item. I am using this laptop on while lying on couch or more comfortable places. I will not use mouse so someone can help me this touchpad? Even if you share keyboard shortways i will be okay. I wanna change the tab for example.

    There are so called laptop mouses, they are about half the size of a regular mouse. If you don't want to use a mouse, then the only option is to take it to a shop and have them replace the touchpad component. Use a mouse - cheaper than repair job.

    My mouse is a mobile mouse and I carry my laptops around with the tiny dongle attached.
    In fact, I put it in a padded laptop case with no problem.
