    What is the best way to clean the MacBook Air 11 "display? I'm afraid to use a liquid cleaner for these surfaces, but it's the best. In my case, I only clean with a soft, dry cloth. Any suggestion?

    Hi there @antonio55,

    That the Forums are with you!  I understand that you are looking for advice on how to clean your screen.  I'm happy to give you a helping hand with this.

    Please see: HP monitors - Safety and Maintenance Guidelines, under the heading "Cleaning the monitor" for details of cleaning, but be sure to read both safety related information.  Depending on what you mean by "halos" try following the instructions for the materials to be used. If you have in the past used something on the list of cleaning products do not turn out to serve, you may have already damaged a part of the screen.

    Please let me know if it works for you and if it does not solve your problem, please mark this message as a solution. Bravo would be appreciated as well.

  • Satellite L350-24U: how to clean the keyboard after having poured orange juice

    Hello out there.
    I spilled my L350-24U with Orange juice.
    Now, I have 4 keys to self-retaining :-(

    Can someone tell me how to clean the keyboard without damaging the laptop?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hmm, it's still a stupid situation
    Usually you can remove the keyboard of the laptop very easily.
    The keyboard is fixed with screws hidden under thin plastic cover near the line of F1 - F12 key.

    If you would remove plastic this cover then you would be able to remove the screws as well. Then you could lift the keyboard carefully and could disconnect the flat cable of the keyboard and the motherboard.

    Notes; two small latches on both sides of the connector must be moved in order to disconnect the cable.

    Then you could remove the keyboard and could clean it with a damp lint.
    PS: the caps can be removed too.
    But be very careful. You must raise the CAP to get it for free.

    There are many videos on youtube...

  • Satellite A305 - how to clean the keyboard after juice spills

    Hey guys,.

    I had a the sSatellite series A305 an i could not find discussions on this exactly.
    Basically whats up's had one incident minor orange juice on the left side of the keyboard thankfully not a lot of juice to all minor.
    I managed to clean most on the surface. And had to work it's good enough to get out of the speaker box.

    However, some of the keys are a bit of stick now, i wondered if there are techniques to withdraw safely on that I must do before I try to block these keys. Hmm pressing on enter appear... in any case...

    I had one of these laptops before a few months ago, but one of the keys is broken somehow, after that, I got a little worried because I had to basically return it and get another laptop from work. If im sure it was a defective key with the last one I was not playing with keys, but I'm not sure how sustainable this is. Also this will probably also help to learn how to clean the keyboard, theres a bit of a dust and grump under the space bar which has been botherin me an i have no idea how to remove one get clean the dirt below.

    I'll check this post when I wake up in the morning. If you know the techniques of hair removal good explain please, I'm not very good with directions so patient with me.


    To be honest, you will never be able to clean the keyboard. Break down the water is maybe not so bad, but the juice is sticky and can not be cleaned properly.
    I'm afraid that you need a new keyboard. :(

    I had the same problem.  Mine was up here an easy solution.   Right-click on the taskbar and display the properties.  Check hide them icons inactive and click Customize.  I had multiple entries in the items being passed, including volume control icon.  Remove the elements in the item passed I have no idea from whence they came.  I ran MicrosoftFixit50015.msi (a Windows package install).  Then re-checked the past again and all elements had disappeared or been corrected.  SEEMS this file or box on the PC has become corrupted.  I changed the control volume on always point display.  Also, I went to control panel and sounds and re-checked the volume icon to Place in the taskbar.   Rebooted the system and has worked for me so far.  Good luck!
