Default Steps for Laptop BIOS or Mother Board

Steps for Laptop BIOS or Mother Board

Step 1 ?

Some coffee was spilled on the keyboard of this Gateway Solo 9500 Notebook.
The Hard Drive is good.

Ste 2?

This Gateway Solo 9500 Notebook; Serial # : 0023713462 will not boot up.

It boots to the BIOS screen and stops. The BIOS message is;

"To change BIOS settings, press F2 To display system messages, press
ESC Hitting F2 or ESC has no effect nor movement.

What steps would you recommend to trouble shoot this boot up problem?

Step 3?

The Gateway Solo 9500 Notebook has been dismantled, cleaned with alchohol.
The keyboard has been replaced. The Hard Drive is good.

If it boots to this BIOS screen, does that mean the mother board is OK?

The IBM Transtar 20 GIG HD was removed in installed in a DELL Notebook. It
booted up and the DATA was backed up. The IBM hard drive is good.

Here is the info on the bottom of the Gateway - Solo 9500 Notebook;
