    My wife spilled half a glass of water on the laptop Toshiba 7020ct.
    she cleaned it up.

    after this incident the keys are typing the wrong letters for eg. if i
    type H i get G and some times two or more letters for the same key.

    She says she has pressed the keys vigorously during the cleaning i was
    wondering if she activated some key or compressed some key which is
    causing the problem.

    i cleaned the keys by removing the keys but it did not help

    I noticed some thing else when i switch on the computer it gives me a
    message saying update EC / KBC . Where can i find this and how do i
    update

    I can use external keyboard and mouse with out any problem.

    I am a computer illiterate please help

    thanks in advance

    Hopefully it will dry out in a few days, I did the same once and used a hair dryer on it a couple of times and it did go right....not much else you can do really....

    laptop toshiba 7020ct

    Bios update


    i have downloaded the bios from the toshiba website and followed the
    instructions but it does not work.

    According to the instructions it says download it into a floppy and
    update the Bios. They ask you to remove the laptop from the docking
    station before updating. The floopy drive is in the docking station
    and i dont have any thing else on the laptop except for a USB port.

    Any way i tried using the docking station with the floppy in it but it
    didnot work. I think there must be some way of updating please advise.

    Should i have boot up files and the BIOS files on the floopy let me now

    Thanks
