I got compaq Presario CQ57 with product number: LR785PA#ABG bought in Australia. Small quantity of water spilled on my key board, i immediatly shut my computer and wiped it with towel and tried to dry with hair drier. All my efforts gone waste, currently few key on my laptop are not working.
Is this laptop got a replacable key board... if yes pls provide part number to source one. Along with key board part number would you be able to provide "how to replace key board" video.
Thanks in advance.

Sorry to know to that there was a liquid spill.
Before you replace the keyboard, please connect an external USB keyboard and check if all the keys working.
If YES, Then only replace the Keyboard. Because there could be a possiblity of liquid damaging the Circuit Board and replacing keyboatrd will not help us.
Below is the Maintenance and Service Guide for your PC, Kindly go through.
