    It is going to have to dry out a LONG time. Or you can get a different (cheap) keyboard. The reason being is that keyboards have layers of thin plastic and if water gets in there it can take months for it to dry out and even then it might not work properly. You might have to completely disassemble the keyboard and clean the layers with +90% pure isopropyl alcohol and let it dry. Then reassemble it and pray that it works correctly. This is not a fun job as it takes forever and there are zillions of little screws, or the even more unfun little plastic clips that break real easy when trying to pry it apart.

    To play Crysis: Upgrade the vid card, and maybe add more memory.

    Keyboard: Honestly - either wait it out for it to dry or just purchase another keyboard. You're going to continually get frustrated and it most likely will be to badly damaged to properly function after. Keyboards are relatively inexpensive now as well. I do understand that you said that you "cannot purchase another keyboard" but that may end up being your only alternative...or steal your sister's (or wife's) That's what I do - but then I get stuck making her dinner for a week. :(

    hi,
    Now you want new keyboard, right? Not only keyboard, for all computer and computer accessories, you can go at Dell Small Business.com. Dell is offering 6% cash back on all purchases for a limited period during holidays. Just few days back, i have purchased new laptop in this store and i have got 6% cash back also. So nice store. Really it is very fast, reliable, solid and very poweful. I'm very happy with it.
