OP you would have to pull apart the computer, its either going to need a new power cable to the LEDS, or new LEDs.
Sometimes mods are way too freaking uptight...
It, hopefully, won’t be a very expensive problem; a hassle though (pulling apart the computer as is stated above me).
OP, after you fix the actual problem, you should probsbly consider doing as MartyF81 said. Your roommate clearly has problems.
you should punch their lights out
You should make your roommate pay for the repairs.
yes i agree with that one
I wouldn't do anything. IMHO this keyboard backlight is a cheap but pretty much useless feature.
It works on mine but I never use it. Learn typing.
If you can't and you still have to look at the keys all the time, turn on the lights, yours eyes will thank you. Using a notebook in complete darkness is about as healthy for you eyes as listening to too loud music on your ipod to your ears.
How does your mate 'spill' WD40 on your laptop? It's kind of a given that you have to hold the button down on the can to get it to come out of the can.
Personally i suspect it's just currently shorting out power to the LEDs leave it another day and see what happens, doesn't take that long for WD to evaporate.
Also be aware that WD40 isn't exactly friendly to the plasticy rubber substances in your keyboard. (whilst it states it's safe to use on rubber...over the long term it eats away at it) So at some point you might find the keys stop working as well!
MD50 is the way to go for your room mate.
Have you tried forcing a shutdown on your roommate?
