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....

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
