Eugh, I've tried to sort this myself for hours however I failed, so hopefully someone has some suggestions. :)

Earlier tonight I was playing a game (Aion) and I opened VLCmedia player when explorer.exe crashed, I assumed this was an unrelated matter and it may be, it hasn't happened before now on this current PC and I've been using it for about a year. I'm quite experienced with computer problems so I'm assuming this was unrelated...

Now this is where you'll all sigh, I spilled a bit of lemonade onto the bottom left of the keyboard, I unplugged it, dried it off and left it for half an hour. I plugged it back in and it was typing fine, until I noticed the P key did not work. The P key brought up a screen saying Monitor only, projector only, split screen and somthing else... Then over 20 minutes more keys started doing random things. Most annoyingly, the L key just straight up locked the computer, and my password contains an L so now I can't log back in... So, I decided to go to a friends and borrow a keyboard, and it has the exact same problem... Still can't log in to see if any stickykeys or something is on, then I remebered the accessibility options on the log in screen so I tried the on screen keyboard...

And the on screen keyboard...

HAS THE SAME PROBLEM

How is this possible? Honestly. Surely something has turned on and is remaining on?

Please help anyone :) Before I reformat this thing.. :(

Dunno if this will help but specs are

Windows 7 32bit
4gb ram
Intel 2.5ghz quad core
Nvidia gt120 graphics card
was using a standard issue keyboard and friends was too...

Also, I should add the some keys would do random things also, like G minimizing everything, Z opening explorer and Crtl opening Firefox...

I think Alt opened Itunes also.

I swear I'm not making this up..
