Hi, I am new to the forums and I searched keyboard, but did not find an adequate thread for my issue. I have had my G74 since february so it is within the 1 year warranty, but recently I spilled coffee all over it. The computer itself works fine, but the keyboard is shot now. I went into the box to find out more about the accidental coverage plan and realized that I needed to register for the within 60 days. Well I am out of luck right? I haven't called to check because I am sure that is how they make their money. Fine, but what my question is, is how would I acquire a new backlit keyboard to install myself? I have searched online for them and turned up no results. Will Asus sell me one? Or is my only option to have them repair it at more cost to me?

Yes, I have seen a video in regards to this particular laptop and it's disassembly. If I were asked I would say I am pretty knowledgeable about computers. By no means am I an expert though, haha. Always careful when it comes to expensive equipment, especially gifts. The coffee was an unfortunate event and won't be happening again.

Yea, mistakes get made for we are only human. The only things we can do are repair them and make sure it never happens again. I know I won't be making the same mistake twice.

Here is a suggestion for those of you with soaked keyboards.
Fill a tub with some clean ( no soaps or solvents ) luke warm water soak the affected keyboard ( removed from the laptop of course ) rinse and repeat several times shake the excess clean water off and let the keyboard dry for a few days. I have revived many a keyboard this way.
