My GF spilled a cup off coffee on my new Razor Black Widow keyboard. And now it doesn't work. I cleaned it out with with distilled water and let it sit in front of a fan for 3 days but it still wont work.When i plug it in with Windows 7 booting up it says no keyboard found.But if i boot it up with another KB and then plug it in W7's tries to install it but it never works..The board is only 3 weeks old.

I would try cleaning it with isopropyl alcohol. Perhaps even disassemble it or buy a few bottles and a proper sized tub (dollar store or walmart) and swish it around for a while.rather then ever using the water in the first place.

Well i knew it was screwed when the screen went all screwy after she spilled the coffee on it..lol

.And the distilled water shouldnt have hurt it at all. as long as i let it dry out completely which im sure i did with a high speed window fan blowing on it for 3 days

You'd think a gaming keyboard, esp a Razer should be tuf 'nuf for something as trivial as mere coffee.

Energy drinks, bongs, caffeine drinks, booze...I've read all about you...'Gamers' ;)

I'm wondering whether the GF is going to be more p**sed about:

-being called a 'dingbat',

-that Mothow is having an "Oh, Ahhhhhrrrrchie" moment, or

-that he put her in the same group as "Stifle it, Edith".

Tune-in next week for the new "All In the Family" here on KHWA.
